PV Key Club continues to forge on with engaging fundraisers and events despite COVID-19 setbacks.
“The pandemic has put a heavy damper on the activities that we traditionally take part in, so a lot of what we have been doing this year lacks person-to-person outreach. We do have a few future initiatives coming into focus,” Key Club advisor, Mr. Lyons, said.
Key Club is currently collecting donations for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, an organization raising funds for blood cancer research.
“Leukemia is the #1 most diagnosed form of childhood cancer. In any form, cancer devastates people’s lives and affects everyone at some point. That said, everyone should consider donating because by doing so, you are helping fight a disease that eventually impacts your own life,” Mr. Lyons said.
All donations can be dropped off to Mr. Lyons’ in room 255 or the front security desk.
In addition to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society fundraiser, Key Club was also collecting donations for the SPCA throughout February. Donations included, but weren’t limited to dog and cat toys, cleaning products, and dry pet food.
In addition to February’s happenings, upcoming months will be stacked with numerous volunteer opportunities and several other fundraisers students can take part in.
“The Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy organized another Stream Clean-up in April. Key Club will tend to two locations in Green Lane Park. You don’t have to be a Key Club member to take part. It’s a nice way to get outside at a beautiful location, hang out with friends, and help maintain the health of the Perkiomen Creek,” Mr. Lyons said.
Key Club meets on Wednesdays after school via Zoom or in room 255.
