Key Club reaches out while social distancing

By Kayla Gayle, Student Life Editor

Key Club is still committed to fulfilling its duties while in the pandemic. The club focuses on helping the community both in and outside of school, through service projects and fundraisers.

“We’ve been brainstorming tons of new ideas and I’ve been working on making them a reality,” senior Estrella Maldonado, the club’s president, said. “We’ve also been teaming up with organizations we usually help out to see how we can continue our service with social distancing.”

The club currently utilizes the Freerice app for members to virtually compete and help donate rice to the UN World Food Program. It also encourages members to write letters to postal workers.

The club plans on participating in virtual Steps for SOS, Kid’s Night Out, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF and reading to PBES students.

To join Key Club students should follow its Instagram (@pompanobeachkeyclub) and join the Remind (code: pbhsnews). The club meets on Zoom every 2nd and 4th Monday at 3:50 after school.

“I think we’re handling everything very well and planning things effectively,” Maldonado said. “I think we’ll have a very successful year.”
