As of April 7, 2013, the Georgia District has adopted Helping Others, Motivating Everyone (HOME) as a service initiative. Clubs within our district already strive so hard to make a difference by volunteering at their local soup kitchen or at a homeless shelter. This initiative was created to facilitate the clubs that volunteer at these places. With this initiative clubs can:
Go and volunteer at their local soup kitchen or homeless shelter
Raise money for either place to give to them for them to do with however they want
Just make a donation of things that they need at a certain time (i.e. making sandwiches)
Contact your local soup kitchen or homeless shelter and see if they need anything or when is a good time to come out and help.
The Georgia CKI Board has adopted Georgia Sheriff Youth Homes as an official district project as of April 22, 2012. Since GSYH first opened in Hahira, Georgia, in 1960, then there have been four more homes opened across the whole state of Georgia. These homes are for girls and boys that have been abandoned and abused, but these kids are not bad kids, they just come from bad families. They live regular lives while they are at the homes, and they stay at the homes for as long as they need to or until they turn 18. You and your Circle K club can aid GSYH and the Georgia District of Circle K by collecting school supplies and other necessities, raising and donating money, or volunteering your time at one of the homes. GSYH also falls in conjunction with Project HEALTHY.
Health and Exercise Always Leads to Happier Youth (HEALTHY)
In 1999, the Georgia District Board of CKI developed a new District Service Focus project called Health and Exercise Always Lead to Happier Youth (HEALTHY). This program focuses on teaching children to eat healthier and lead more active lifestyles.
