Kiwanis Indiana District – Habitat For Humanity

KI District Habitat 1

René and Sandy attended the Indiana District Mid-Year on March 10th, 2018 on behalf of our Kiwanis Club of Indy-It’s 5o’clock Somewhere.

This year at the convention, Kiwanis members got to assist in a Habitat for Humanity Build. There were two sign up times for this event. René and Sandy took Crew 1 from 7 to 9 am.  Each crew was divided into 5 groups consisting of about 10 to 12 people. They all worked together, no matter what their skill set was, to help build a house for a mother and her 5-year daughter – Kisha and Khole. It was really cold but well worth it! Working together, meeting other Kiwanians, and helping a family in our community.  It doesn’t get any better than this!

Our Service Project…

BABE

Once again, our club members have been going into action at B.A.B.E. as a follow up to our original service project.

Only this time…the diapers were really stacking up!  But nothing would stop our gang of Pamper Packers!!!

We have been gathering a few times now at B.A.B.E. to pack up those diapers….and even though they seem to be stacked against us…we prevailed every time!  LOL

This program is such a valuable one and a great project for our club!  We love that we are able to help them out and hope to continue doing this for them on a regular basis,

To learn more about B.A.B.E – Check out this B.A.B.E Fact Sheet or this really informative B.A.B.E Brochure

Here are some pictures showcasing the FUN time we had helping others!!

Chipotle – Pennies For Patients

chipotle

On Thursday, February 15th, The Chipotle Mexican Grill on 86th Street here in Indianapolis participated in the Pennies For Patients Campaign.  (More about the Campaign is below.)  Our Club Members, if they ate there, just had to mention that they were “Here For LLS” and Chipotle would donate 50% of its proceeds to the campaign.  This actually went well beyond just our club.but our club members were happy to participate and give back!!!pennies2Since 1994, millions of dollars have been raised in pennies and other spare change by more than 10 million elementary, middle and high school students throughout the country. The funds, collected during a three-week period, benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Everyone who participates is a winner!

Students across the country are collecting pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters during the Pennies for Patients campaigns benefiting the Society.

In the Pennies for Patients campaign, the class collecting the most change in each school receives a pizza party. Prizes such as computers, electronics and sports equipment are presented to the top schools in each area. The Pennies for Patients campaign began in the Society’s North Carolina Chapter in 1995.
