Sundling students dish up sundaes for PTSCC seniors
The Sundling Jr. High School Builders Club, sponsored by the Palatine Kiwanis Club served ice cream sundaes to the seniors of the Palatine community at the Palatine Township
Senior Center on April 23, 2012. Jim Parker from the Palatine Kiwanis and Ann and Ron Anderson from the Schaumburg Kiwanis came to help as well.
The Palatine Kiwanis Club has been in the community for 52 years, and is part of Kiwanis International, a global
organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one community and one child at a time. The Kiwanis Club of Palatine performs many service projects in our community to help serve children, needy families, and the elderly. They raise between $30,000-$50,000 per year and donate it to the community and offers two college scholarships. The Kiwanis Club meets at Emmett's Tavern and Brewing Co, 110 N. Brockway St., Palatine, IL 60067 every Tuesday at 7pm and the 1st and 2nd week of the month at noon. Visit www.palatinekiwanis.com for more information.
The Kiwanis Club has supported the Builders Club at the Sundling Junior High for 22 years. The Builders Club is like a mini-Kiwanis Club that does service projects for the school and community. They serve ice cream to the seniors at the Palatine Township Senior Center and hand out Christmas presents dressed as elves to disadvantaged kids and their families at the annual Christmas party sponsored by the Kiwanis, Jaycees and the Palatine Township. They also organize a Soles 4 Souls program
where they collect used and new shoes for kids in need of shoes and provide other services to Sundling school such as outdoor clean up. The Sundling Builders Club has also had field trips to St. Joseph’s Home for the Elderly where students have read poetry and short stories to seniors. There are 27 children involved in the Builders Club and it is run by Nancy Biancalana, an 8th grade American history teacher.
