These past couple of months, the members of our very own Columbia High School Key Club planned and held their annual Concerns-U book drive. Concerns-U is a local non-profit organization aimed to help under-privileged families provide gifts to their children during the holiday season. However, unlike past years, this most recent book drive had tremendous results. This year the Key Clubbers tried a different technique, which most likely led to their success. They turned the book drive into a competition hoping it would lead to greater donations for Concerns-U. The criterion for the competition was simple; the guide room that collected the most books would be given a free breakfast one day before school. With the motivation of a possible in-school breakfast, the total number of books collected was over 2,250. “Golly Gee!” exclaimed Key Club President Jillian Dolder as the entire group gazed over a room filled with books. All of the books have since been donated to the Rensselaer Concerns-U, and Columbia High School Key Club plans on doing the same book drive again next year with hopes of an even greater turnout.
