Students getting involved with the Care For Kids Club

Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School has given students many chances to get involved with clubs such as Students Concerned for the Needy, Student Movement Against Cancer” and more. The Care for Kids Clubs can now be added to the list. 
 The Care For Kids Club is a club that was created by junior Emily Yang along with her vice presidents Jazlyn Navarro and Kaytlyn Mohabir. The three created this club to give back to the community, bring awareness to children in specialized health facilities and possibly make a difference in the life of a child.
 “We aim to provide the children with a chance to socialize with others to make them feel supported by a larger community.” Navarro said. 
The group hopes to reach out to a variety of hospitals once the pandemic is over to plan visits to the children. Members will be able to interact with the kids through story readings, crafts and games. However, since that currently isn’t an option the group is planning to host activities such as making cards for both the children and health care workers, book drives, fundraisers and much more. 
For those looking to get into college,  joining the club can provide you with community service/volunteer hours as well as provide you with a way to make a difference in society. 
At this current moment the club is still accepting members. Their next meeting will be on Monday, Nov. 9 where they will be announcing volunteer opportunities for the near future. If you want to get involved follow their Instagram @careforkids.spf where you will be provided with the link to the group me and join the google classroom with the code iwzawml. 
Hopefully, in the future this club will be a lot bigger and make a huge impact on the community” Mohabir said.
