The Carle Place Key Club recently braved the cold to raise money for those in need, as they took part in the popular Red Kettle campaign.
The club has volunteered with the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle program for several years. This year, they rang the bells and sang carols outside a King Kullen in Mineola, an event organized by the Kiwanis Club of Mineola. 20 students participated in shifts throughout the day and the club, in conjunction with Kiwanis representative Luisa Filipe, was able to raise $505.
“Volunteering on behalf of the Salvation Army with Kiwanis and the Key Club is always such a nice way to partake in the spirit of giving during the holiday season,” said Key Club president Rachael Martines. “By ringing the bell and singing holiday songs, we are not
only making an impact by collecting donations, but spreading cheer and making our community a happier place.”
