Volunteering Opportunities and Giving Back to the Community

EHS groups such as Key Club and Rotary Interact provide opportunities to help those in need.



EHS clubs are working hard this winter season to be a force of good in our community.


During the winter season we find many people filled with feelings of generosity and a desire to help the less fortunate.

Several Ewing High clubs are working to bring about positive change to our community.

The Key Club originally started in California in 1925 and is “the oldest and largest service program for high school students in the world”, according to their website. The EHS Key Club branch has several opportunities for students to help out this holiday season.

The Key Club is currently running a toy drive for children that will continue until December 19. Please bring the new unwrapped toys to room 214.

Additionally, volunteer opportunities are available to assist the Salvation Army with Bell Ringing at the Pennington Shoprite/ Pennington Market on December 20 and 21.

According to their website The Salvation Army annually assists 6,000,000 people during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. Their goal is to provide meals and shelter for “those who would otherwise be forgotten – to homebound seniors, the ill, inmates of jails and other institutions, and those stricken with poverty”.

Please see See Ms. Burd in room 210 for permission slips and more information if you would like to help out with this more than 125 year tradition.

Rotary Interact is selling Candy Grams until December 20 with all proceeds going to The Children’s Home Society of NJ. The candy grams cost one dollar and are on sale during lunch on Tuesdays and Thursdays and everyday in room 210. The candy grams will be delivered on December 21.

Locally based and in operation since 1894 “The Children’s Home Society of New Jersey is a nonprofit organization that helps at-risk infants, children, youth, and families achieve their potential. We protect abused or neglected infants and children, strengthen families, and strive for stable, permanent, and loving homes. The Children’s Home Society of New Jersey gives parents the knowledge they need to help their children and themselves long after our active services have ended” according to their website.

Please reach out to a club member or advisor if you would like more information on how to help out this holiday season!
