Members of Harker’s Key Club had a busy and productive spring, collecting clothing, toys, food and animal carrier crates for the Sacred Heart Community Center and raising some $1,100 for the Silicon Valley Humane Society.
The funds were raised by selling baked goods, bagels, and root beer floats. Additionally, one student opted to anonymously donate $500 towards the cause.
Kerry Enzensperger, director of the upper school community service and activity program, reported that Key Club participants were thrilled with the results.
The Key Club is part of an international high school organization sponsored by Kiwanis International. Key Club members assist Kiwanis in carrying out its mission to serve the children of the world.
High school student members of the club perform acts of service in their communities, such as cleaning up parks, collecting clothing and organizing food drives. They also learn leadership skills by running meetings, planning projects and holding elected leadership positions at the club, district and international levels.
