Walk for Water

Walk for Water 2019

This year, we are holding our 2nd annual Walk for Water, in partnership with the Thirst Project. The Thirst Project is a nonprofit organization that raises funds to send missions to countries that do not have clean water sources, and help them build wells and reservoirs in order to provide water for whole villages and communities. Last year, we raised about $400. This year, our fundraising goal for the Thirst Project is $2,000, and you can help us reach our goals!

Our Walk for Water is going to be held on Saturday, November 16, registration starting at 12:00 pm. It will be held at our EHT High School Track at 12:30 pm. Admission is $5, and 100% of this donation goes directly to reaching our fundraising goals for the Thirst Project. You will earn volunteer hours for attending this event. There are two ways your are able to sign up to attend: online or on-site. If you are interested in registering early, then you can use the Walk website (linked below) to register using a card. If you would rather prefer to register on-site, donations will be accepted at the walk. Either way of registration is completely fine and safe!

Our walk will have food, music, and many more great things so please plan on attending. This is a family event, so anyone is able to come: your mom, dad, siblings or even pet goldfish! It will be an amazing time so come out and help raise money for thirsty children around the world. If you have any questions, please contact Natasha Iqbal (contact information can be found at the bottom of the Board page). Register and spread the word! Hope to see you there!

Feedback

We would love to hear feedback from everyone about your likes/dislikes about events, or any ideas you have for who/where we can help and what events you’d like to see!

The feedback form is at the bottom of every page on this website: https://www.ehtkeyclub.com/feedback/

Also, I hope that those who went to Fall Rally (and everyone in general!) are inspired to continue volunteering and having fun in Key Club! There are many events that will continue to be posted, especially where organizers reach out to us requesting and relying on our help! We do a lot to help our community, and I wish that you all are able to find out for yourselves the reason/why you are in Key Club.

Random commentary about Fall Rally: “Fall Rally was really fun! I got to spend the entire day chatting and going on rides with my friends, and I had a really good bonding experience with them. It’s cool that key club took us to six flags for something key club related :o”

Currently, we are working on adding all the members from after the general meeting onto the website. Let us know if there are any errors. Stay tuned!

The Purpose of Key Club // Finding Replacements

Hello! First, let's review our Key Club's Mission Statement.

Key Club is an international, student-led organization that provides its members with opportunities to provide service, build character and develop leadership.

1. We join Key Club because of the ENORMOUS impact we are able to make on others. This isn't just for hours. That's not the point of being a Key Club member. Please keep that in mind.

2. We join Key Club because our traits are to be selfless... and caring, our way of life. Be eager to help out! We are not here to play on our phones. There is a difference between volunteering and hanging out with friends.

3. Lastly, we join Key Club to develop real-world life skills. This includes how you prepare for a job. If someone decides to not show up without alerting their employer or not finding a replacement, they'd get fired.

 

As you may recall, negative hours are usually given to anyone who cannot find a replacement in time for an event (assuming you signed up for it and cannot attend). Please keep track of what events you have signed up for!
Please let the OCC that's in charge of the event know that you will be unable to make it as soon as possible! It will be your responsibility to find a replacement for yourself.

The OCC in charge may be able to help you look for someone. They can also have an Officer take off your sign-up for the event if you are sick, but make sure to message them at least 12 hours prior.

If you are unable to find a replacement the first time, it's okay! Please learn that you need to find a replacement because we need to give the organizer the number of people that can help out.
