Montgomery Catholic High School Key Club recently assisted in the annual Water Festival at AUM. The Water Festival is taught by employees of Montgomery Water Works and ADEM and teaches local 4th graders about water filtration and conservation. Montgomery Catholic Key Club students assisted presenters in leading 4th graders through making a filter and learning how ground pollution contaminates our water supply. They also used activities that taught the 4th graders that very little of the earth’s massive amount of water is actually accessible and suitable for drinking, so it is important to conserve water and make efforts to keep it clean.
Montgomery Catholic High School Key Club is sponsored by the Montgomery Kiwanis Club and has 50 members that typically do thousands of service hours each year in their school and parishes by tutoring, performing campus clean-up, and assisting at parish events, as well as for community organizations such as Camp Chandler, Alabama National Fair, Christmas Clearinghouse, Reality and Truth Ministries, and fundraisers for Children’s Hospital and for children with Spina Bifida and Cystic Fibrosis. The Key Club will finish the school year by hosting a St Patrick’s Day party at Wesley Gardens and helping to renovate houses with Transformation Montgomery. If your organization is in need of volunteers, contact the MCPS Key Club sponsor Jeanene Crenshaw at Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School.
