Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany President Carol Tiesi said, “When I was sworn in as President in October, one of my initiatives was to work with the Key Club on their goal of collecting food for the needy. We started in Parsippany and will continue throughout next year to collect as much food as needed.” The Key Club comprises passionate, hardworking high schoolers dedicated to serving their homes, schools, and communities. We strive to make the world a better place through service and caring.
