Key Clubs and Spreading Smiles

Key Club is an international, student-led organization that provides its members with opportunities to perform service, build character, and develop leadership. Every year, Caitlin’s Smiles is excited to be part of the Pennsylvania Key Club’s District Convention. This year, the Key Club students decorated bags (for us to fill with Play-Doh®, crayons, coloring books, cards, journals, books, and craft kits) and made origami kits for children in hospitals. Over 100 students participated! Caitlin’s Smiles also participated in the Key Club service fair, hoping to get some more volunteer help across the state to provide local hospitals with pediatric units, and children’s hospitals with arts & craft supplies. One of the first students at the service fair shared with us that she had received one of our “Bags of Smiles” during her weeklong stay at St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital in Bethlehem, PA. She’s hoping her Club makes us one of its projects next year so she can help spread smiles!

A special thanks to the 15 members of the Shikellamy Key Club who came to Harrisburg early so they could volunteer at the Caitlin’s Smiles office for a couple of hours before the official start of their convention. This team did an awesome job decorating bags, making craft kits, and putting away their donations. They even volunteered for Caitlin’s Smiles for the evening service projects and led the workshops to decorate bags and make the origami kits!
