So much has happened in the month of October I missed the action of the members of the McKee Key Club.
On Saturday, October 8th, the Staten Island Mental Health Society hosted an event called “Touch-a-Truck,” at Midland Beach. Touch-a-Truck was a collective event where local businesses and first responders volunteered their time and equipment for the chance for children and adults to experience the field. Hundreds of people visited the event throughout the day and it was very successful. Numerous Key Clubbers from McKee volunteered to setup, cleanup, and helped direct people to the correct places and entrances. We checked in with Kiwanians throughout the day regarding our stations and progress. Although it was difficult for some of us to wake up so early on a Saturday morning, helping out within our community, made it all worth while. The best part was seeing the joy on all the faces of the little toddlers that came out that day…some even dressed up in firefighter and police costumes. The event, overall, was very rewarding work that we would love to be a part of again
