NP3 Key Club kicked off the start of the 2022-23 school year by collaborating with the greater Kiwanis Club to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Key Club is an international service organization for high school students which encourages leadership by serving others. 

In late August, Kiwanis Advisor, John Perryman provided NP3 Key Club with bread, peanut butter, jelly, utensils, and sandwich bags to the members at Blackbird Park.

CAFFE, a volunteer based organization that serves food to the homeless, has organized making and passing out sandwiches every Sunday at Cesar Chavez located in downtown Sacramento. More than a dozen Key Club members joined in making sandwiches, creating over 200 sandwiches in an hour.

Ms. Naomi, a member of the Kiwianis Family, gave Key Clubbers pins and cookies to wrap up the event.

NP3 Key Club President, Jolene Phung said, “The event went pretty well. I was really happy to see members enjoying themselves while giving back to the community! I cherish the memories we make while binding with each other.”

She added that , “Meeting new people and making friends is definitely one of the highlights of this event!”

This activity is just one example of the many opportunities NP3 Key Club plans to provide for its fellow members this year.

Students interested in joining Key Club in the future can fill out an application in August of next school year.
