Realizing the need and interest in supporting the Major Emphasis Program through hands on service, a new service initiative will be created on a two-year basis. All of the hands on service provided to children by Key Club International members can be directed to a single area of need to make a substantial impact. This service initiative directs and focuses the attention of KIWIN'S members to serve children in a specific hands-on approach. CNH KIWIN'S members focus their time and talents on Live2Learn, specifically focused on 5-9 year old youth, with the main goals of promoting education and building literary skills. This program not only creates endless possibilities to strengthen the common goal of service, but also allows each CNH KIWIN'S member to develop into a well-rounded individual community leader and lifelong advocate for children's education.


HERCULES HIGH SCHOOL In the month of August, members were able attend a variety of service events before school started. The first few service events include helping Hercules High school prepare for walk through registration by creating signs, printing out forms, and organizing papers. Members were also able to help out during walk through registration. They help hand out books and check over forms. Eden Housing held a National Night Out get together for the community to come to, and Hercules KIWIN’S were able to help out at the event. Members assisted with signing people in, serving food, and handing out raffle prizes. Another event member were able to attend was the City Horse Fourth Annual Carnival. There members helped run carnival booths and hand out prizes They got to meet many new people and animal friends. The last service event held in August was the Bottles and Bites food tasting event. Members helped watched the kids of those attending the event. They also served the kids food and played with them. As a bonus, member were also able to taste the scrumptious food.  

OAKLAND HIGH SCHOOL In the month of August, we had one service! We volunteered at the 2018 Bay Area Color Run and was probably the most fun we had at a service this summer. We revved up the crowd as we tossed pink chalk at all the runners. Others handed out water and cheered from their station. Even though we were sneezing pink dust for the next couple of days, it was totally worth it! After the Color Run, we swept up the course and festival areas and collected debris, litter, and colors. Also, our officers attended the OTC last month and they said they had so much fun talking to everyone. They learned things about KIWIN's they never knew before! 

RICHMOND HIGH SCHOOL In the month of August, we completed a total of 120 hours of service! On National Night Out, our members helped pass out backpacks and monitor the game tables at Hilltop Mall. At the City Horse "Kids" Carnival, our members had various tasks of setting up tents, monitoring carnival games, managing the prizes, and working at the concession stand. For this month's Soup Kitchen, RHS KWIN'S members and Kiwianis members prepared spaghetti with green beans for the people at the shelter. Our last service event was the Richmond Annual Carnival that happened during the weekend. RHS KIWIN'S members and Making Waves KIWIN'S members worked together pairs and walked around the carnival to pick up trash. After, we each got a free wristband to ride rides.


For this month my club has sort of been all over the place but is managing to get a lot done. First we went to the clean up at the fair near the Richmond public library. There I saw new people for my club and I was excited that we managed to get new people to join us. Along with that me and my officers have been planning for club rush which is on September 12th. We have been making posters and flyers ready to get new people to join KIWIN’S. We also got a new advisor since sadly ours left last year but our new advisor is very nice since she is the one that brought KIWIN’S to our school In the first place. After that I have been contact a new animal shelter that just opened in San Pablo that is ready to have me and my members help out there as soon as possible. I am very excited for this school year since a lot of new people and new things are going to happen in KIWIN’S.
