[October 18, 2021, Carefree, AZ]   Key members of the Cave Creek Unified School District and the Kiwanis Team met on Thursday, October 14, to formally present the CCUSD with ten large banners that will be hung in each of the CCUSD schools. These banners represent and showcase the cooperative effort and support from the Carefree Kiwanis for the schools.  Each year Kiwanis donates tens of thousands of dollars to support a multitude of programs for the CCUSD students.

Dr. Monroe offered these remarks:  “Thanks to a generous donation by Kiwanis Club of Carefree, AZ, we have these amazing banners that are hung around the district.  Kiwanis Club of Carefree is an integral member of the CCUSD community where volunteerism is celebrated.” Dr. Monroe said, “Kiwanis and CCUSD partner for the success of students.  Kiwanis is part of the backbone of this organization.”

Bob Moore, Chair of the Communications Committee, noted what a pleasure it was working with Dr. Monroe and his staff in designing these banners with the simple message of partnership and volunteerism, and that several members of the CCUSD staff, who are members of Kiwanis, have already volunteered many hours to Kiwanis projects.  Part of the objective of these banners is to encourage parents and others to actively consider joining Kiwanis, volunteering their time at the schools or at the Marketplace, or even shopping at the Marketplace where a large portion of the funds support Cave Creek community, always doing good for the kids and we are delighted to be partners with this amazing Unified schools.
