KAYS did a reverse trick or treating to collect food for the food pantry. Thank you to everyone who helped and donated food! It was a huge success!!
Kamryn Rietzke and Brooklyn Stauffer collected many items and then helped sort food at the community center.
Each month the KAYS make something for their community. This month they prepared for December and made upcycled Christmas cards for veterans. Peyton Chestnut, Khloe Reimer, Tristan Taylor, and Sam Baker work on Christmas cards for vets.
