Kiwanis Christmas Charity

Over 50 Birthday bags from Kiwanis Christmas Party
Kiwanis ended it's year with a Christmas party where the fun benefits local charity.   Admission to the party was a Birthday bag for the Hancock County Food Pantry.   Birthday bags are given out to clients of the Food Pantry who have a child under 12 in the month of their birthday.  Each bag contains a cake mix, icing, plates, napkins, candles and small gifts or party favors.  Kiwanis collect these all year long and are assisted by the Greenfield-Central Key Club that collect the bags.  

Scott Kleine reported that the Key Club had adopted to Christmas families and that the presents and gift cards had been delivered today.   It was also reported that Kiwanis members had contributed $470 to the Food Pantry to pay for meat for their Christmas baskets.

The highlight of the party was a white elephant auction that raised $1,1,40 for local charities.  Some of the best presents were a rubber chicken, a singing Christmas tree, and a red neck toilet plunger.
