Key Club delivers flowers to nursing home for Valentine’s Day
On Tuesday, February 14, the St. Patrick Key Club participated in the annual service project. Each Valentine’s Day, the Key Club brings flowers to the patients in a nursing home. This year, the club ordered about 150 carnations, and delivered them to the elders in The Pillars of Biloxi. The students walked around the nursing home, and handed out the flowers to the people in each room. They happily accepted the flowers and thanked the students for coming. This small act of kindness is so great, because it reminds the elders in the nursing home that they are loved and thought about.
The Key Club is a service-oriented club at St. Patrick that many students are a part of. This club hosts and partakes in many service projects throughout the year. It is important for students to understand their influential role in a community. Community service enables students to acquire life skills and knowledge, as well as provide service to those who need it most. The Interact Club and Key Club both participate in many projects throughout the year.
One of the members of the Key Club who participated in the event, Taylor Smith, said “I really enjoyed this service project, because of the joy that I got to see on all of the people’s faces. I was happy knowing that they were happy with just one flower. I’m so glad that I got the opportunity to bring joy to others on Valentine’s Day!” The flower delivery project this year was a big success!
