Whetstone HS Key Club fills Kinship Care bags

The Whetstone High School Key Club gathered to help the Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resources Center with a big project that will have a lasting impact on Central Ohio families.

Thanks to a grant from the Kiwanis Club of Columbus, the CRC is able to provide “Welcome Bags” to 200 or so of the Kinship Care families it will serve this year.

As part of a $7,000 grant given to the CRC by the Kiwanis Club of Columbus, the Kinship program will be able to present each new family with a reusable bag (donated by Proforma Buckeye) filled with special gifts and resources to aid the Kinship family.

The Key Club at Whetstone was brand new this year, and sponsored by the Northern Columbus Kiwanis Club, so this service project was a natural match.
