The MHS Key Club’s first project of the year is underway: It’s a warm winter gear drive — and YOU can help!

Did you get new winter gear for the holidays, and now you have mittens, gloves, or scarves that are in good shape, but you just don’t need them any more? Or maybe you’re looking to clean out your closets, where you have too many scarves, gloves, or mittens you don’t wear often? If you don't need them anymore, pass them along to someone who does! You can donate new or gently used winter items to the MHS Key Club.

Youth and adult items are welcome. The Key Club plans to deliver the donated gear to our elementary schools for kids or families in need, and keep some at the high school, too. 

>> HOW YOU CAN HELP: Starting Jan. 4, there will be donation boxes in the MHS main office, the MHS Media Center (library), and in Room 2-5 (district office), and Room 2-46 (Ms. Vermilion’s room). The drive will last until Jan. 23.

Key Club is the oldest and largest service program for high school students. It is a student-led organization that teaches leadership through service to others. Members of the Kiwanis International family, Key Club members build themselves as they build their schools and communities. Key Club has approximately 260,000 members in approximately 5,000 clubs throughout 37 countries.

If you are interested in joining the MHS Key Club, meetings are held every other Monday in Room 2-46. The next meeting will be on Jan. 9. See Ms. Vermilion for more information.

COMING UP: Key Club is already planning ahead for their next project, a “Show Your Love” food drive. They will be donating to local food pantries after Valentine’s Day.
