Say hello again this year to the Key Club, Malden High School’s club for volunteering and helping out for the Massachusetts community. Key Club is an opportunity to volunteer and reach out to the community while earning a good college resume. The main purpose of the organization is to care and preserve the community.
With over 120 members,the club stands today as the largest club at Malden High School. They have recently volunteered at the Heart Walk on September 12th and at the Jimmy Fund walk on September 27th.
The Key Club’s yearly routine is to volunteer with walks and ymca events. During the winter and spring seasons, they are busy with many Malden events such as Title 1. Not only is Key Club said to be an active volunteering program, but it is also a great opportunity to interact with new people.
Key Club’s first walk of the year the Heart Walk received 70 Key Club volunteers to show directions to the runners and provide them with water. Tenzin Dechong, a sophomore Key Club member found the Heart Walk, “good that a lot of people showed up,” to the event.
Matthew Le, the President of Key Club, thought that the walk went very well and was glad that, “the freshmen were able to enjoy it.” Many members are said to have a great time at the Heart Walk. Felix Li, a freshman member, explained, “I was elated to be part of such a big event and to be able to volunteer and support the cause of the walk.”
The Key Club’s goal is to have more teenagers in high school interested in volunteering and to make a bigger and positive impact on Malden. This club is a way for teenagers to discover new traits about themselves and make new bonds and friendships that will last throughout their high school years.
