The Circle K club has been nothing but busy. This international service program is focused on helping communities, and that is what Circle K has been doing. Already, even as one of the newest clubs on campus, the Circle K club has spread its wings and is in flight.
Since the beginning of its existence Circle K meets at least once a week, usually on Thursdays at 2 p.m. in the Grace Hall board room. At these meetings, members discuss ideas on what they can do in the future to help with communities. It is always open to new ideas and would like to see new faces.
Circle K has already participated in two fun nights. Fun nights are when Circle K and volunteers from the community help plan games for the children to participate in, keeping them off the streets.
Circle K has also gone to soup kitchens twice to help serve food. It also participated in Light the Night with West Chester Circle K, which is a walk for leukemia. Circle K also helps with a program called Sebastian. Sebastian is a program where handicapped children ride horses to help them strengthen their muscles.
Due to the events of Sept. 11, Circle K took it upon itself to make boxes for donations to send to the American Red Cross. It also sold ribbons for the victims, donating all profits.
The Cabrini chapter attended the Fall Rally, which is a convention for Circle K. West Chester, Drexel, University of Pennsylvania, and Immaculata College all came together to meet each other, and train for future events at this rally.
Circle K has also made soup bowls from scratch to sell them to raise money for its division, along with many other fundraisers. Cabrini’s Circle K has participated in kite festivals and Philly Cares day.
Circle also plans on gift-wrapping with MARC (Montgomery county association for retarded citizens), helping out with Habitat for Humanity and with adopt a highway programs.
The chapter of Circle K that is recognized at Cabrini College is having tons of fun. This organization is a heart-warming club that is willing to serve the community while having fun.
