This past weekend at Day for Kids in the 10th street park, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Wayne County Keystone Club were able to give away over 10,000 pounds of food to 252 families.  In doing this, we were able to provide food for 926 individuals. This is the biggest community service project that the Keystone Club has done so far.   A special thank you to Gleaners Food Bank who partnered with the Club on this outstanding community program.

The Keystone Club is a chartered small-group (8 to 15  members) leadership development club for young people ages 14 –18.  Keystoners elect officers, choose their own activities, and plan and implement community/club service projects under the direction of an adult advisor over 23 years old.

A national charter entitles a Keystone Club to participate in regional and national Keystone conferences.  The Keystone Club is the leader and fuel behind the Club’s teen programs.  Their service to the community and Club help build vital leadership and character skills.
