Welcome to a splendiferous new year, packed with new experiences and new ways to help your homes, schools community. The new year is symbolic to everyone around the world. It brings a clean slate, promises to change in the next 365 days, and a hope for better times to come. As we transition into the new year, let us all take a New Year’s Resolution to do more community service than we have ever done. To help those who need it, even if it is as simple as holding a door open for the person behind you. To become leaders, through the simple act of hosting a fundraiser. I hope you all have a joyous, service-filled new year!

Did you know?

Service Project of the Month: Soup Kitchens

Even the Make-a-Wish! Foundation has an overabundance of volunteers during the holiday season, and sadly not enough for them to do.

Quick Tips to Make a Difference - Start a routine to volunteer at and donate regularly to your local food pantries. - At meetings, ask that members bring in one canned good which you can collect and bring to the food pantry. - Set up rotating volunteer schedules within your club. One week, certain members will go volunteer. The next week, another group of members will go.

Phillipsburg High School Key Clubbers volunteering at a Wesley United Methodist Church Soup Kitchen along with Kiwanis, which bought the food

Soup kitchens, food pantries, and other sources of food for the homeless are filled this time of year with holiday do-gooders. Unfortunately, many of these locations report that they have a surplus of volunteers that they have no need of during Thanksgiving and the Holiday Season but a dearth of volunteers during the rest of the year. Volunteers are not the only problem soup kitchens and the like are facing; food donations skyrocket during November and December and plummet during the rest of the year.Help your local community by volunteering your time and donating canned goods throughout the year. Take a look at the “Quick Tips to Make a Difference” list for ideas on how your Key Club can help local food pantries and soup kitchens routinely.

! Recap: Letters to Santa for Make a Wish!

Would you like to do something similar? There are many companies and organizations that provide the similar commitments. The Central Jersey Blood Center will commit $5 for every pint donated when you hold a Blood Drive with their Center.

! At the last Divisional Council Meeting, the officers of Division 13 spent some time writing letters to Santa. These letters were dropped off at Macy’s, where for each letter, Macy’s would donate $1 to the Make-AWish! I would like to thank all of the officers for creating such beautiful letters and helping make children’s dream come true!
