Circle K is a student organization affiliated with the Keene Kiwanis. Circle K promotes volunteerism on campus through service projects and fund raising. Just a few examples of their work are hosting the Alzheimer’s Memory Walk, the American Red Cross Blood Drive, and the Barefoot Walk on campus.
Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity at Keene State College is a student chapter that puts on events and construction projects to help raise awareness of the poverty and housing shortage worldwide and in our community. The money raised at our fundraisers throughout the year goes to our tithing location at an international Habitat organization. As an organization the three main functions our general members would be exposed to are to build and rehabilitate houses in partnership with Habitat affiliates and homeowners, educate the campus and community about affordable housing issues, and raise funds to support the work of Habitat for Humanity locally, nationally, and internationally. We welcome all to join our weekly meetings and to share their ideas and skills with the chapter.
Relay For Life
The journey to end cancer starts with a single step. When you walk to end cancer at Relay for Life of Keene State College, it’s your opportunity to not only honor cancer survivors and remember loved ones lost, but also to raise awareness about what we can do to stay well from cancer and raise money to help fuel the world’s largest walk to end cancer.
Information about volunteering or registering a team will be available later this fall.
Relay for Life of Keene State College will be held Friday, April 8, 2017.
