Cereal Drive Underway
Key School is participating in a cereal drive that supports the Capital Area Food Bank. Your child can bring cereal boxes directly to their classroom, or drop them marked with your teacher’s name in the bin located in the main entrance.The classroom that collects the most boxes of cereal wins the “Golden Spoon.” These donations are a source for breakfast during the summer school break for at-risk area children. Ends June 9th.
Collecting Toiletries and More for Neighbors in Need
For Key’s last community service drive of the year we will be collecting essential items for the female clientele being served at N Street Village. This is a safe haven for those impacted by domestic violence, a support system for women who suffer from mental illness and substance abuse issues, and a service provider for those with disabilities. Between 50 and 100 women enter N Street Village DAILY.
Let’s help. Donation boxes for toiletries (of any kind or size), socks, and undergarments (for females, all sizes) will be set up in the breezeway through the end of the school year.
Thanks to everyone for a successful year supporting important organizations that help our neighbors. Please share any ideas for drives and organizations we can support in the 2019-2020 school year by emailing Chrys Limardo at email@example.com.
