SIDNEY — The Sidney High School Key Club is a student-led organization that provides its members with opportunities to serve the community. The club selects service projects based on the most pressing needs identified.

In mid- October, the students learned that Agape Distribution suffered the theft of its generator, valued at $1,200. This vital piece of equipment was necessary for the lights, heating and refrigeration of the mobile unit used to deliver food each Saturday to the surrounding villages of Shelby County.

They decided to attempt to “Generate” funds for the replacement of the stolen generator. While organizing a plan, they learned that Agape was one of 18 organizations selected to have their donations matched by the Community Foundation of Shelby County on “giving day,” Dec. 1, 2020. This knowledge caused the students to accelerate their campaign and through letters, presentations and follow-up phone calls, they were able to raise $1,200, meeting their goal, by the designated date. On Wednesday, Dec. 2, the Key Club officers, Jaden Humphrey, Lily Wiford, Badin Brewer, Heidi Aslage, Olivia Wise and Vincent Ruiz presented the final tally to Pastor John Geissler.
