Socks and PJ's Collection
Socks & PJ's Project:  Again this year the Johnson City's Kiwanis Club, with assistance from the University High Key Club, the ETSU Circle K Club, and the students and staff at Ashley Academy, will combine their efforts in November to collect socks and pajamas for the students in the Johnson City Schools' Homeless Student Program.

Items collected by members of the three Clubs and Ashley Academy, along with donations from the public, resulted in the collection of hundreds of pairs of socks and dozens of sets of pajamas last year. Community donations will be collected at the TJ Maxx store on North Roan Street during the two weekends prior to Thanksgiving. There are currently about 150 students in the program. Any excess collected merchandise is given to other children in need.

For additional information contact:
Roger Cox
Secretary, Kiwanis Club of Johnson City

Key Club has a collection box in the lobby of University School for Sock & Pajamas collections. Thanks!

Threads of Hope is a livelihood project initiated by Alex and Chris Kuhlow in March of 2003 to bring help and hope to families at risk in the Philippines. This outreach was launched from one simple act of compassion for a friend on a tropical beach there.  An order for 1200 bracelets was made to provide a struggling family with a good source of income for an entire month. The artistry and effort that went into each piece was astounding. Since then, others have wanted to buy the bracelets to help the poor and the Kuhlows have partnered with multiple groups and individuals in their efforts to raise funds. 100% of the profits were used to employ other struggling families. As a result, Threads of Hope is now providing a steady income to 250 families, nearly 700 people and is striving to help more.

In 2011, University School Key Club partnered with Threads of Hope, Inc. and raised more than $1,200 for the families selling handmade bracelets. We want to initiate another fund raising effort this year and are selling a variety of handmade products, including round and flat bracelets, key chains, lanyards, book marks, eye wear cords ,and necklaces.  These products range in price from only $2.00 to $8.00. The Threads of Hope foundation allows schools and others raising funds to keep one half of the proceeds from sales. This year Key Club will seek to donate our share of funds raised to local entities and charities, such as Johnson City Homeless Education Services, Second Harvest Food Bank, and others.

If you are interested in purchasing one of these beautiful handmade products, please contact Ms. Squibb. Key Club members will also be selling the items.
