Staff Report

KSI’s Aktion Club collected more than 500 pounds of non-perishable food items from the community for donation to the Food Bank of Delaware during the month of August. The Aktion Club, a volunteer service group supported by the Dover Kiwanis Club, and KSI staff advisors, has given back to the community since 2008 when it was chartered.

In addition to helping the local community through this food drive, the Aktion Club has also provided funding to the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware and the Kent County SPCA. Club members also share their time by reading to senior citizens attending the First State Senior Center, assembling Christmas Food Baskets for distribution by the Milford Lions Club, and ringing the bell for the Salvation Army during holiday time.

The Aktion Club’s ongoing fund raiser is the collection of can tabs. Can tabs are collected all year long and enable the Club to recycle the aluminum for cash. They also have an ongoing coin collection container in the KSI café. On September 14 and September 28, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., the Club will be selling car raffle tickets in the front parking lot at KSI. They have partnered with the Milford Lions Club who makes it possible for others to earn money while helping to sell their car raffle tickets.
