BOO! It is officially Spooktober, a perfect time for fundraising for a great cause, and having fun at the same time. ToT for UNICEF goes towards The Eliminate Project which is a partnership between Kiwanis and UNICEF in hopes of eliminating maternal and neonatal tetanus. For an idea of how severe tetanus is to newborn babies, "Every 17 minutes, a newborn baby dies from tetanus." It is truly heartbreaking that this happens to new families, but we can help. So far, The Eliminate Project has raised $86 Million, and we can help further that amount! Click here for more information.

Dues October 1st has passed so dues are now payable! The cost of dues is the same as every year, 13$ which breaks down to 7$ for Key Club International and 6$ for the New York District. October 31st is the day that Early Bird dues are due (a bit repetitive right?). On this day your club will nee to have submitted 11 dues to win this award and receive it at LTC. Besides an award, I recommend aiming for this date as it gets dues out of the way nice and early so your club can focus on other things. Try submitting it a few days before the deadline though, just to ensure you get the award. November 29th is the last day for dues to be submitted. Please don't wait for this last moment!

Youth Opportunity Fund On September 1st, the Youth Opportunity Fund (YOF) has been opened for applications. The YOF is a fund which provides grants to Key Clubs for scholarships and service opportunities. The YOF can grant around $1002000 for your club to do great things for the community. I recommend your club to apply for this grant, as it is practically free money! The application is recommended to be submitted by October 10th, but the final date they are accepted is October 15th. For more information click on this text box for a link to the website explaining the YOF further.

Service Spotlight Our club volunteered with a local organization called Nick’s Fight at their Run to be Healed 5K! This non-profit organization works to emotionally and financially support children battle cancer, and often supports the pediatric center at Albany Med. Our members got to do various activities like putting on carnival games for the kids, handing out water to runners, and face painting! This was super fun for our members and it is always really rewarding for us to see our town come together to support this cause!


Service Spotlight and Update Over the past couple of months the Hempstead Key Club has been busy at work and remaining busy. In the month of august we organized a school supply drive at Staples in Hempstead and collected school supplies to donate to our local  by Hempstead elementary schools. Our Vice president Nyla Cameron attends bingo at the Townhouse nursing home. for national voter  registration day we promoted voting and explained the importance of it along with a presentation. This is known as “Civic Engagement Day”. During Hempstead High Schoolchella we fundraiser money which we are still figuring out what it will go towards & we still have much more fundraising to do. Key club don’t make keys, but we do open doors!!

DISTRICT NEWS 4. District Endorsed Projects New York District Key Club has its own endorsed charities which are always good options. Fundraising Goal: $3,500 Each A. Kamp Kiwanis Kamp Kiwanis is aimed at providing fun, physical exercise and adventure. It strives to make opportunities to participate in a creative outdoor group experience, and develop characteristics of leadership and fair play.

DISTRICT NEWS B. Lyme Disease Foundation This foundation was set up to help pay for medical treatment for children. Unfortunately most insurance companies do not pay for its treatment, hence Kiwanis acts to take up the bill. C. Pediatric Trauma Center The foundation supports pediatric trauma efforts at the Cohen Children's Medical Center as well as programs to improve the ability of local emergency medical services response teams.

DISTRICT NEWS 5. International Partners Just like New York District, Key Club International has its own endorsed charities that you are always welcome to support! One such charity is: A. UNICEF You may have heard of UNICEF before. It is an organization of the United Nations, that works with government bodies from around the world to ensure children's needs are met. It's main concerns are "primary health care, basic education and sanitation".

POINTS SYSTEM When brainstorming ways to get clubs more involved within the Division, one solution came to mind: A Points System. The way it will work is when your club does something such as holda fundraiser, you will get a certain amount of points, club with the most points at the end wins! Pretty simple right? Check out the spreadsheet to see how it will work: Click Here.
