Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast

We have another fun Kiwanis Project coming up! The annual Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast is happening on Saturday, April 27th! They need our help to collect tickets/money, make pancakes, serve, and clean up. It is super easy and fun to do and is another chance to connect with the Kiwanis members in our community.

This is  one of the major fundraisers the Jenks Kiwanis use to raise funds for their projects, so it’s really important that we have people there. About 5 volunteers are needed to help that day.

When: Saturday, April 27th, 7-11 am

Where: First United Methodist in Jenks (Just to the East of Cacy’s BBQ)

Sign up here.

Questions or need to cancel your signup: email specialprojects@jenkskeyclub.org

Asbury 2nd Saturday April and May

I have made previous posts about the Asbury Second Saturday service opportunity but I made one again so you don’t have to search for it. The Second Saturdays are still happening and the next one is this Saturday, April 13th and also on May 11th from 8:15-12:15. I will go ahead and post the information again in case you missed it last time!

Asbury United Methodist Church 2nd Saturday is a wonderful way to receive four hours of community service! Below is a description of how 2nd Saturday works:

  • Guarantees 4 hours of community service (8:15am-12:15pm)
  • Is free and easy
  • You can bring friends and family (children 13 and younger must be accompanied by an adult)
  • Has no advance registration (except for liability form signed by parents on first visit)
  • Provides transportation to and from sites
  • Allows you to choose where and how you serve—there are different service opportunities each week for places all over Tulsa!

2nd Saturday is easy and fun:

  1. Come to Asbury Venue (6910 S 101st E Ave, SE of Asbury’s Main Building, east of David’s Bridal) on the second Saturday of the month at 8:15am wearing work clothes. 
  2. Registration is a simple liability form filled out by a parent on the first visit (do not need it filled out again for subsequent visits), or parents can go to the link at the bottom of this post to fill it out in advance.
  3. Pick a serving site from 5-10 options which vary each month. Opportunities commonly include: interior painting, nursing home visits, cleaning, gardening, minor repairs, neighborhood pickup, organizing, block parties, and food packaging. There are projects for all ages, outside and inside, easy and difficult.
  4. Get on a bus.
  5. Serve!
  6. Return to church by 12:15.

2019 Kiwanis Trash Bash

Come to the Kiwanis Trash Bash on May 11 from 8am-4pm! It is located northeast corner of 106th & Elm Streets this year.

We need teams of 2 working 2 hours shifts all day long. The goal is to collect money, direct traffic, and help unload large items if necessary. This is Kiwanis’ largest fundraiser and it is also used (in part) to provide scholarships for seniors in our club. It is also easy and really fun!

Last year we just talked to Kiwanis members, directed traffic, and collected money so it’s a very low-key service opportunity and a good chance to get to know the Kiwanis adults who help sponsor our club! (Key in Key Club stands for Kiwanis Educated Youth). They are an adult service organization that founded Key Club in 1925.

Date: May 11th

Time: 8am to 4pm (2 hour shifts)

Location: northeast corner of 106th & Elm Streets
