Preferred Charities

UNICEF helps improve the health and education of children and mothers in developing countries. The Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF alone has contributed to over $167 million dollars to date!

March of Dimes is a nonprofit organization that works to prevent birth defects and improve the health of mothers and their babies.

Children’s Miracle Network is pretty much what it sounds like. They are a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise money to support children hospitals, medical research, and spread awareness of children’s health issues.


A Word from your Lt. Governor! Hey guys, Welcome back to school! I hope you all are having a fantabulous time getting things ready for your first Key Club meeting. Remember to keep recruiting people so our clubs grow. DUES ARE DUE BY NOVEMBER 1st so pay as soon as possible. Treasurers, if you have any questions about how to work the membership update center, let me know! If any of you are curious, the August DCM/BBQ went well! We got people from Bremerton, Kingston, Olympic, and South Kitsap clubs to come out. Rain or shine, it was pretty fun! Hopefully it won’t rain next time. As a reminder to other clubs, SEND AT LEAST ONE REPRESENTATIVE TO MY DCMs. I cannot stress that enough. Well, keep reading for more information on what happened in this division during the month of August!

With Love,

Amy Liu
