Dedicated to helping their community, members of the Key Club participate in several service projects throughout the year. As the holidays approach, the club organizes a canned food drive to help families in the Shelby Township area.

“Utica families and students have always been extremely generous,” club co-sponsor Joy Greico said.

After collecting food, Key Club members pack and ship the boxes, partnering with the Utica-Shelby Kiwanis Club.

“Kiwanis gives us money to run the food drive,’ senior Charlene Dukes said, “so we think it is important to give back to them and give back to the families in need.”

Dukes, who has been a Key Club member since her sophomore year, is serving as this year’s Key Club president.

This year, first hour classes will compete to see who can make the most donations.

“Boxes will be distributed to each class,” so-sponsor Courtney Struck said. “ The winning class will receive donuts and juice.”
