Students at Anderson County High School decided to help ill children for the holidays recently by running a toy drive that collected over 60 new toys.  The students are part of the newly formed Key Club at ACHS.

The Key Club, which is the high school student arm of Kiwanis International, was recently founded in Anderson County in conjunction with the Anderson County Kiwanis Club.  Although still quite new, the ACHS Key Club has a considerable membership, with 38 students joining by the end of October.

Both sister clubs are community service oriented.  Key Club advisor as well as ACHS arts and humanities teacher, Elizabeth Swartz, has been helping the new club with community service projects like the recent toy drive.

Elizabeth said that toys were donated from students, ACHS staff members, adults in the Kiwanis Club, as well as community members.  The club recently brought the dozens of new toys to the Ronald McDonald House of Lexington.
