Two years in a row, our club has helped organize a hat/glove drive to help out a local middle school with students in need. The collection drive starts in December and the items are delivered some time during the last week before Winter Break starts.
In 2016: 70 bags filled with gloves, hats, candy (and even some socks and scarves) were collected, organized, and delivered by the Kiwanis Club of Charles County to the local middle school. The following student groups contributed to the donations: La Plata High School SGA, La Plata High School Best Buddies, and North Point Key Club. Boxes of toys and other gifts were also donated! Great job to all who donated or helped out with this great collection!!!!

In 2015: The following clubs collected hats, gloves, and candy for children in need at another local middle school – La Plata H.S. Key Club, Westlake H.S. Key Club, La Plata H.S. SGA, and La Plata H.S. Best Buddies. Just over 60 bags were collected just in time for the winter season! Kiwanis Club of Charles County donated the gift bags in which the items were placed and helped facilitate this service project!
