  Pay it Forward is one of the service clubs students are able to join. Every year their goal is to give back to the community in various ways.

 During November club members knitted blankets for the women and kids shelter, a place for those who want out of abusive situations. 

   “During the winter is the busiest time of the year for us,” Mrs. Fraiser said. 

   Week after week there are various volunteer opportunities and many people in need out there.  The week of December 9th pay it forward are being hired as Santa’s elves to write back to five first-grade classes at Wanda Grey, Jefferies, and Horace Mann elementary. This is something elementary students can look back on as a fun memory and increase their holiday spirits. This tradition that has been going on for years throughout KHS history, even before the previous sponsor of the club.

   Along with this the members of pay it forward also adopted a family for Christmas while Key club is trying to take on three. 

   “We are also gathering things for a holiday basket through cross line for a less fortunate family,” Fraiser said. 

   These will be gifted to them and under the tree come the holidays time. This gives the members of the club satisfaction of knowing they helped the less fortunate giving a little extra that we all are able to give.
