Join the Key Club! Fight malaria


Got any old keys lying around?

Keys that you haven't used in years and have no idea where they fit?

Why not put them to good use saving lives?

The Keys To No Malaria Club is a project of the Benton/Chestuee Youth Group, evolving from an idea shared by a senior adult member of the Cleveland District church. To become a Key Club member, just send your old keys to the youth at Benton United Methodist Church and Chestuee United Methodist Church.

"We'll be selling the keys for the scrap metal value just before Annual Conference," says the Rev. Betsy Switzer. The proceeds will go to Imagine No Malaria, the United Methodist initiative to eradicate malaria by the end of 2015.

The Holston Annual Conference, which meets June 9-12 in Lake Junaluska, N.C., has pledged to raise $1 million to help its denomination stop needless death by malaria in sub-Saharan Africa. 

Mail your un-needed keys to: Rev. Betsy Switzer, 153 Franklin Drive, Benton, TN 37307. For large amounts, email and the Benton/Chestuee youth will make arrangements to pick up the keys.
