Key Club Women’s Shelter Drive


Key Club hosts women’s shelter supplies drive

The newly founded Cleveland Heights High Key Club held a month-long fundraiser to collect supplies for the Norma Herr Women’s Shelter in Cleveland to help homeless and abused women and children. Key Club made posters and advertised all around the school along with the morning announcements. They made collection boxes and placed them throughout the school in places like the library, guidance counselor offices, and nurse’s office.

The items that were asked for include: toiletries, shampoo/conditioner, baby items, toothbrush/toothpaste, socks, hats, gloves, etc. Key Club will be assembling care packages at the end of the collection. At the end of April, the club will bring the assembled packages down to the shelter and distribute them.

Abby Lauretig, a sophomore at Heights, is glad she joined Key Club. “I like knowing that the work we are doing is helping better our community.” Abby feels that it is important to care about your community and helping others.

Key Club will be participating in other community service projects to help better the community as a whole. The club is currently working on growing and planting plants outside of the Delisle Options Center. Plants to be planted include carrots, cosmos flowers, cantaloupe, peas, lettuce, tomatoes, beets and more.

If you are interested in joining, contact Mrs. Francis or come to room 219 after school on Wednesdays. The Key Club is making a big difference in Cleveland Heights!
