Important Info and Signups
CTE Color Run
The CTE Department is hosting a color run at Frank Liske Park this Saturday, Feb. 24th and is in need of 6 volunteers to help spray people with color and assist with other run events as well. Volunteers would need to arrive at 8:15am and would be done by 11:00am. 3 service points will be awarded to the volunteers for this event. Because RAH is happening on the same day at the same time, we are worried that we won't be able to fill these spots and they NEED our help. If you are available for 3 hours on Saturday morning, PLEASE sign up! Click HERE to sign up.
Rise Against Hunger
Rise Against Hunger is an organization that strives to serve those in our community who do not get meals to eat on a daily basis. We will be assisting this organization in a project with the other school that make up our Key Club division (7B). We will need 15 volunteers to help put meals together on February 24th from 10 AM to 12 PM! This project will be worth 4 service points! To sign up for a slot, click HERE!
**NEW -- PLEASE READ AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS!!! -- If you signed up on the signup genius to volunteer at the Rise Against Hunger volunteer event please go to the link below and officially signup there as well. (Note - it may appear that spots are full - signup anyway...just trust us.) This gives the RAH people an official notification of how many people they can expect. They cannot see our signup genius so it is important for them to know who is coming. Please do this ASAP!
Tutoring at Winkler Middle School
We have been approached with an opportunity to provide tutoring at Winkler Middle School for students that are struggling. This is a great chance for our club to provide service and reach out to future JMR Bulldogs and possible Key Club members! More info will be placed on the website soon.
We will need 2-3 people to volunteer on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday and Thursday of each month. You will be required to be at Winkler from 3:00-4:00 to help. You will receive 2 service points for each shift that you sign up for. To get your points you will need to have a service points voucher signed. A link to a voucher form can be found below or you can pick one up at the next meeting. The first volunteer date is Tuesday, October 24th. To sign up for one or more tutoring sessions, click HERE!
National Pancake Day
National Pancake Day, on February 27th, is great for obvious reasons but IHOP will be donating a percentage of their proceeds to the Children's Miracle Network. The Children's Miracle Network is a preferred charity of Key Club International. You must go to the University IHOP location in Charlotte (NOT Kannapolis location) and send a picture of yourself there to the Key Club Remind thread in order to receive 2 fundraising points!
VEX Robotics State Tournament
JMR is hosting another VEX Robotics statewide tournament on March 10th! Mr. Parisi has once again asked our club for 20-24 volunteers to assist in various parts of the competition. This event will take place at Robinson once again from 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM. Breakfast and lunch will be provided for all volunteers! You will receive 9 service points for volunteering. To sign up, click HERE!
Boys & Girls Home Donation Opportunity
The Boys & Girls Home of North Carolina is an organization that is dedicated to serving the physical, mental and emotional needs of vulnerable children across our state. This organization is also a preferred beneficiary of the Carolinas District of Key Club. This spring, the Boys & Girls Home is asking for bedroom items to give to the children. Items will be collected on March 15th, but the earlier you bring the items the better. Fundraising points per item are as follows:
6 points: Twin Comforter
4 points: Twin Sheets, Matress Protector
3 points: Laundry Basket
2 points: Blanket, Pillow Protector, Shower Caddy, Alarm Clock, Pillow, Towels
1 point: Washcloth, Toothbrush Cover, Soap Container
Each year, Key Club asks teachers to sign up to receive small gifts on St. Patrick's Day. You will be able to pick out your teacher on the March 8th meeting and gifts will be due back to Mrs. Rush on March 16th. As a token of our appreciation to our faculty and staff, please try to spend around $10 on gifts for your teacher. You will receive 2 serivce points and 2 fundraising points for this project, considering time and money spent shopping for the gifts!
We have a lot of projects in the works right now! Stay tuned throughout the exam week and all of the craziness for updates on new service opportunities!!!

You are allowed to receive up to 15 out of club points for non-Key Club oriented service that you provide. It is preferred that you continue to focus your efforts on helping women and children. To earn these points, you need to fill out the points form appropriately and turn it in to Mrs. Rush or our club secretary, Megan. The officers will then discuss your out-of-club work and decide if it is worthy of points or not. Double dipping between multiple clubs to get points is not permitted. You may still submit the points but you are not guaranteed to receive them. Typically speaking you will receive one point for every hour of service that you complete.
