MAJOR EMPHAIS PROGRAM BAINS, ST.CHARLES EAST HIGH SCHOOL
At the first Key Club International convention in 1946, the organization was given the responsibility of creating a program that would unite all the Key Club members together into an area that would make an International impact. This is how the Major Emphasis Program and its theme, “Children: Their Future, Our Focus”, got started. Any project conducted by members or clubs that help serve children in need is considered a project of the Major Emphasis Program. Key Club International works with three preferred service partners that help unite all Key Club members together in one common goal to help children across the world. These three service partners include UNICEF, March of Dimes, and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Each year thousands of service hours and dollars are donated to help children in need. Currently, Key Clubs all over the world are working with their local Kiwanis Clubs to help eliminate Maternal/Neonatal Tetanus (MNT) from the face of our world. Each year, MNT takes 100,000 lives each year. It is our mission to world with Kiwanis International to help eliminate this disease by the year 2015 by raising $110 million dollars to help purchase vaccines to protect a mother and her future babies from this deadly disease. Small differences, like donating money to our service partners, makes a big difference in the lives of children. Get your club involved today!
Yours in Service, Most clubs wonder how they can really contribute to the District and find new service projects, I have a solution for you! This year our goal, as a District, is to make Spastic Paralysis stand out! We need YOUR help! On Saturday September 7th, 2013 we want you to do a service project/fundraiser for Spastic Paralysis. However, we want you to make it an interclub with your local Builders Club and K-Kids! Children
