Dallas Center-Grimes High School

Key Club is an international organization sponsored by Kiwanis, a global volunteer organization. There are many Kiwanis and Key Club groups all around the United States, one of which is here at Dallas Center - Grimes. We not only participate in volunteer opportunities around the state, such as Meals from the Heartland and Miracle League, but we also find ways to fundraise at our school. Being a part of Key Club is a great way to give back to your community and create new friendships, both with your classmates and with new people. Join Key Club, where helping the people around you is highly recommended, and getting a new outlook on life is provided.
