Park Avenue Elementary K-Kids have done it again.
The group held their annual ‘Father Daughter Dance’ in February and raised close to $1000, which was split between two charities. K-Kids is a fifth grade service club sponsored by the Mt. Gilead Kiwanis Club.
They donated half to the ELIMINATE project through Kiwanis and Unicef. The project is designed to help to vaccinate pregnant mothers in third world countries to prevent maternal neo-natal tetanus. To date there have been 16 countries that have been vaccinated and completely freed from this horrible disease. The K-Kids helped to save 233 lives with their donation.
They donated the other half to Flying Horse Farms in Mt. Gilead. The camp for children who are battling serious illness.To learn more about either of these projects visit www.kiwanis.org or www.flyinghorsefarms.org
