Circle K International is a student led organization on campus that hosts a variety of events on campus ranging from s’mores nights, to guest speakers, to blanket making. They focus on community service and help out with a variety of non-profit organizations in the Hays community.
“We are based on three pillars: service, leadership, and fellowship. We do a lot of service both on campus and off campus,” said Rylee Bretton, the club’s webmaster. “We also do a lot of fellowship activities to get our club to be more engaged with one another and to create those personal relationships.”
On Saturday, August 31, at 2:00 pm in the Memorial Union Trails Room, Circle K will be making Blessing Bags that are to be donated to First Call for Help. The Blessing Bags will include goodie items and a personal letter of encouragement that will be delivered to someone in need.
