K-Kids clean environment

LIMA — The K-Kids pledge states that “As a K-Kid, I promise to serve my neighborhood and my school. I will show respect toward my environment and try to make the world a better place.”

The student members of the K-Kids Club at Heritage Elementary school took that pledge to heart on Thursday. Students were picking up trash in the neighborhood nearby the school hitting all their goals in one effort. K-Kids is an organization that is in every Lima City school.

K-Kids is a student-led community service organization that operates under school regulations and draws its members from the student body. Kiwanis (the “K” in K-Kids) Club serves as the club’s sponsor.

K-Kids is structured only on the local club level but is supported by district volunteers appointed by Kiwanis leaders. K-Kids is the largest service organization for elementary school students, with more than 36,000 members worldwide.
