The Lynbrook High School Key Club, along with club adviser Dr. Benedict Tieniber, received a proclamation from New York State Sen. Todd Kaminsky and New York State Assemblywoman Judy Griffin on Jan. 31 for their exemplary service to the community.
Among their many service projects, the club has hosted successful tri-annual blood drives, resulting in the organization receiving the Heroglobin Award from the New York Blood Association for the 2017-18 and 2018-19 school years. The high honor is presented to a school with an outstanding number of blood donations. The Lynbrook Key Club blood drives have saved more than 1,470 lives over the two-year period.
Key Club members have also participated in a “Halloween Safety” event at the Lynbrook Kindergarten Center, a holiday party for senior citizens, co-sponsored a Paint Night event with Lynbrook START Club to raise money for SunriseWALKS, raised more than $3,000 for Project 9 Line through a Powder Puff football game and held popcorn fundraisers and sold discount cards for the past three years, raising $5,000 to support the Rose Brucia Educational Foundation.
The Lynbrook Public Schools congratulates the Lynbrook Key Club and Dr. Tieniber on this outstanding achievement.
