The organizations receiving service grants were:
People Reaching Out
River Oak Center for Children
We also invited a representative from Wind Youth Services to present them with 50 comfort kits that club members made. This included toiletries and sundry items for homeless youth that use their facility.
The annual Crab and Pasta Feed was held on February 7, 2014 by our club in partnership with the Sacramento Suburban Kiwanis. The hall was filled to capacity with close to 600 hungry customers. Again this year, the key club youth from 3 local high schools volunteered by serving food and helping with the raffle.

We call the evening "March On for Service" and we enjoy handing out the grants but also hearing from the agencies and what they will be doing with the grant they are receiving.
