What other way to get into the Christmas spirit than by giving to others.

Key clubs sent cards to veteran homes in Manteno, IL, and blankets to a Ronald McDonald House. These two events were overlapping in their most recent club meetings.

Students make the cards to thank Veterans for their service and key club sends them out, prior to veterans day

The cards were sent to 10 veterans within the two weeks before Veterans Day.

Key club had been sending cards to veterans every year, ever since Ms. Jeanette Quinn has been a sponsor. Quinn has been doing this for about 10 years.

Each year, key club makes fleece blankets each year and finds places to donate them.

This year, Key club is donating blankets to Ronald McDonald house so that they can be included in care packages for families with children receiving treatment at Christ Hospital.

“Every nice gesture we make for others helps us to improve our community,” says Quinn.

Quinn buys colorful fleece and club members make the blankets by cutting small strips around the sides. Then, the strips are tied into knots to make a decorative fringe.

“I enjoyed it. The cards are a nice thing to give back to soldiers for risking their lives for us, and the blankets are a nice token of love and hope for the kids” says Gabriella Gallegos, senior.

Key clubs projects change every semester but they are still selling bracelets to raise money for families in the Philippines.
