The LCHS Key Club students joined their adult sponsors on a cold afternoon at Ralphs to collect money donated by local residents. Above from left are Kiwanis President Elect Thomas A. Passanisi, Gigi Shuleter, Peggy Touchstone, Stewart Lee, Key Club Secretary 10th grader Christine Noh, Key Clubber Colin Suehiro, and Kiwanis Key Club Advisor Ken Lowe.

Several members of the Kiwanis Club of La Cañada and their sponsored La Cañada High School Kiwanis Key Club worked together selling peanuts at Ralphs supermarket to raise money for the Kiwanis’ Eliminate Project.

Kiwanis International and UNICEF joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. This deadly disease steals the lives of nearly 60,000 babies and a significant number of women each year.

To eliminate MNT globally, more than 100 million mothers and their babies must be immunized. This requires vaccines, syringes, safe storage, transportation, thousands of skilled staff and more. It will take $110 million and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every member of the Kiwanis family to accomplish this goal.

Kiwanis and UNICEF joined forces to tackle iodine deficiency disorders, achieving one of the most significant public health successes of the 20th century. By eliminating MNT, the project will reach the poorest, most neglected mothers and babies with additional lifesaving health care. The end of this one disease means the beginning of better health for many families.
