Last Friday we had a group of volunteers come from the Brooklyn Tech Key Club to help out in the warehouse. The students from Brooklyn Technical High School are part of the Key Club chapter there, led by rising senior Holy. Key Club is an international student-led organization which provides its members with opportunities to provide service, build character, and develop leadership. (Director of Operations Joel Frank is actually a former Key Clubber, so I’d certainly believe the part about “character” building, especially when he does his famous Jokes of the Day.) The Brooklyn Tech chapter usually helps raise money through walks for a variety of causes such as cancer research and AIDS research, so their visit to MFTA marked the first time they volunteered at a warehouse. Their tasks included putting out fabric, sorting beads, and folding clothing. Though it was very different from their usual service work, Holy told me it was “very fun. There’s a lot of cool stuff.” I’m glad their first time at a warehouse was enjoyable, and I hope to see them (or other Key Clubbers) back soon.
