Bowling Green K-Kids Participate in Make a Difference Day

In honor of Make A Difference Day, the Bowling Green K-Kids members attended the Trunk-or-Treat Street Fair at the Massapequa Train Station in New York. The event was presented by the Massapequa Moms, Long Island Loyalty and the Joey Foundation.

K-Kids members distributed candy to trick-or-treaters and ran a craft table where visitors made Halloween decorations using paint color sample cards. Visitors making decorations were asked to donate $1 to fund construction of a new roof for the Bethel Primary School in the island nation of the Jamaica.

The K-Kids club received a little more than $150 in donations, which will be used for the memorial plaque acknowledging donors who contributed to the new roof project. A partnership between the Hopewell Kiwanis Club and the Joey Foundation made this project possible. 

Involvement in this service project presented a unique opportunity for K-Kids club members to make new friends. Plans are currently underway to set-up a pen pal program between the Bethel Primary School students in Jamaica and the Bowling Green K-Kids in New York.
