Key Club and Builders Club

 

BUILDERS CLUB:  Middle School Service Club

 

KEY CLUB:  High School Service Club

 

Builders Club is a service oriented club sponsored by the Kiwanis Club. Its primary function is to introduce the concept of volunteerism to Middle School age students and to provide community service to the residents of Geneseo.  Some of our projects have been to visit and play games with residents of Geneseo Village and help residents at Hammond Henry extended care pass out candy to trick or treaters. At Christmas, we sponsor a family by buying Christmas presents.  In May, we provide pie to the faculty during Teacher Appreciation week.   We make money through the Middle School volleyball concession stand.  Students in grades 6-8 are welcome to join.  We meet once a month.  Meeting dates and times are announced in the school’s morning announcements.

 

Key Club is sponsored by the Geneseo Kiwanis Club. We do a variety of community service projects (anything that is requested, really). We have a few fundraisers so that we can give money away to organizations that may need it (especially the animal shelter, Growth, Spastics Paralysis Research Foundation).

 

Some projects:

  • collecting ink cartridges and used cell phones
  • walking dogs at animal shelter
  • raking leaves
  • making cards for hospitals and nursing homes
  • make Christmas cards for homes and hospitals
  • variety of things for St. Judes

Some fundraisers:

In the spring we attend a district convention. It includes all of eastern Iowa and western Illinois.
