LITTLETON SCHOOL K-KIDS FUNDRAISER – The Littleton School K-Kids Club will be having their annual “Souper Bowl Soup Drive” during the month of January. They will be donating all of the soup collected to the Parsippany Food Pantry. The Collection will run from January 9-Feb.2, 2018. The PHHS Key Club indicated an interest in assisting with the project. I’m hoping that our Kiwanis Club will again participate in this worthy endeavor. Cans of soup may be brought to our Thursday meetings during the collection period or donations may be dropped off to Littleton School. Michele Picone is extremely excited that this project will occur this year! Thanks in advance for participating in this community joint service project (K-Kids, PHHS Key Club, and Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany). Well over 500 cans of soup were collected last yr. Many Parsippany residents will benefit greatly from your kind gesture. Thank you so much, Ryan Archer and Carol Tiesi – K-Kids Club Advisors Littleton Elementary School
