A philanthropic endeavor

The University's chapter of Circle
K has about 1,200 Facebook frietnds
and is in a relationship with Michaigan
Stare University's chapter of the club,
but "it's complicated."
Circle K in an international service
organization that participates its a
variety of service projects and helps
lead on- and off-campus groups in
incercommunicy service, including
partnership with neighboring colleg-
es - like Michigan State University.
The club is the college division of
Kiwanis - an international service
organization with differenthbranches,
including Key Club at the high school
level.
Though itsname doesn't suggestcit,
volunteering is at the heart of Circle
K. The campus club as a whole has a
10,000 service hour goal for this year
and currently has logged about 6,825
service hours so far, according to LSA
junior Natalie Kittikul, the club's sec-
retary.
While there is no service hour

requirement for general tmembers,
the organization offers an extensive
calendar filled witha multiple projects
each day.
"We offer a lot of different proj-
ects, from helpisag children to play-
inghbingo with the elderly to planting
trees," said LSA senior Alli Schaffner,
the club's vice president.
Schaffner said Circle K is the per-
fectcorganization for busy college stu-
dents who are looking for ways to give
back to the community because of the
variety and frequency of events.
Students can also use Circle K
activities to fill philanthropic or ser-
vice requirenments.
Circle K'shbiggest'event is its atnnual
Service Day in which the club spends
24 hours doing continuous service
project4, accordingcto KittikulAtcthis
year's Service Day in November, the
club had 397 participants working
on 77 different service projects, like
bucketing for Dance Marathon and
tutoring high school students.

Kittikul said club members arenn't
"just a number" to Circle K leaders.
"We actually want you to set up
your own projects and go to thena,"
she said. "We'll help you recruit vol-
unteers."
Club leaders said participants can
sign up on Circle K's virtual calendar
on the University chapter's website,
which they say makes it easier to be
active in the organization.
According-to the club's president,
Charlie Cure, this method encour-
ages club and non-club metmbers
alike to participate in service oppor-
tunities.
"We have a virtual sign-up system,
so anyone on campus can click on
a project, fill out their information,
read a description and then sign up
right there," Goelz said.
Schaffner said Circle K service
projects have spawned many other
University groups like The Detroit
Partnership and K-granns.
