Kiwanis Club says thanks

-A A +A

Many thanks go to the generous students, parents and faculty who last month supported a Kiwanis International fundraising effort entitled “Project Eliminate” — a multi-year collaboration between Kiwanis and UNICEF to eradicate maternal and neonatal tetanus in developing countries. Tetanus is a devastating disease, which on the average takes the life of a baby every nine minutes, and yet is completely preventable with a series of three inoculations for mothers, at a cost of only $1.80.
Three of our Kiwanis-sponsored youth clubs — K-Kids at Aspen School, K-Kids at Barranca Mesa School and the Builders Club at Los Alamos Middle School all took part in a “Penny Wars,” or “Penny Pileup” campaign. The elementary school classrooms and the middle school Hawk teams vied against each other to earn the most points, where each classroom/team earned positive points with pennies and dollar bills, but vying classrooms/teams could “sabotage” their rivals with silver coins, which counted negative. Prizes were awarded to each classroom/team with the most net points and also to those that had the most overall money collected. We are thrilled to say that because of the over-the-top enthusiasm exhibited in this campaign, we will be presenting checks in the amount of $3,152 to Project Eliminate.
