Blackman Middle School Builders Clubbers will be hosting a can food drive and selling “turkey feathers” next week. The kids will be selling paper feathers during their lunch period to benefit the local food bank. The feathers will be posted outside teachers classrooms. The teacher with the most feathers will in turn have to dress up like a turkey at the school’s pep rally. The kids also made Christmas cards for a terminally ill child and signed up to bring in gifts for the Dec. 5 Candle Wishes party.

The count is in, and Blackman’s Key Club raised over $4,000 for Unicef with this year’s Trick or Treating! Enjoy some pictures from their event!
Our club joined other groups from the community today to help raise funds for Habitat for Humanity. The public was able to buy a bowl for $10 and got to sample food from numerous groups.

Go ahead and mark your calendars now! If you eat at the Jim N Nicks in Murfreesboro this Tuesday between 4:30-9:00, you will be helping raise funds for the Oakland H.S. Key Club! The kids will have a table set up at Jim N Nicks that night. All you have to do is buy food at the establishment and then drop your receipt in their fish bowl as you leave! Jim N Nicks will donate 10% of your purchase directly to the Key Club! It’s that simple! So go ahead and tell your family to plan on eating out Tuesday night!
