High School Key Club Serves Community Members in Need

This week, we are excited to honor the Prairie High School Key Club for volunteering over 275 hours so far this school year!

The Prairie High School Key Club in Cedar Rapids, Iowa is a student-led organization that allows students the opportunity to serve their community, build character, and develop leadership skills. Now in the fourth year, Prairie High School Key Club has over 100 members who volunteer in and around the Cedar Rapids community with organizations such as Young Parents Network, Catherine McAuley Center, Families Helping Families, Salvation Army, ARC, Gems of Hope, and College Community Schools.

This year, the group made fleece blankets for residents at the Catherine McAuley Center transitional housing unit so that women in need can have blankets of their own during the winter. Members of the Prairie High School Key Club have demonstrated a clear desire to positively impact people in their community, and are an enthusiastic example to their peers.

Thank you all for your service!
