Key Club offers students a plethora of services and opportunities to gain at least 25 hours of community service.

“The purpose of the Key Club is to volunteer and help others in the community. By volunteering, the Key Club causes the world to be a better place,” Key Club President Garrett Lim said.

As of October, Key Club has gained more than 50 members, according to Lim.

Key Club board member Jeffrey Chen said, “We are planning many more service projects this year such as the Turkey Trot we did last month and a fundraiser in January.”

The Key Club Organization focuses on the union of people to serve their community in any way possible. In fact, “Key Club” got its name from boys in Sacramento High School who wanted to create both a better school and overall spirit. This group of boys was soon called the “key boys” of SHS due to their good doings. After all, it is one of the only worldwide organizations that is exclusively student-run.

“I thought [Key Club] would be a great opportunity, and before this club, I had no idea how to get my volunteer hours,” Key Club member Jason Chen said. “Going out and volunteering as a school definitely shows the community how committed we are to giving back.”

To get involved or join the club, meetings are held every other Tuesday in room 608. For more information, talk to either Garrett Lim or Justin Tam.
