Circle K International hosts divisional event

Written for The Argo by Gabriela Marroquin

Stockton’s branch of Circle K International, a collegiate service organization, held a social and community service event on campus on Saturday, Feb. 18, with students from Rowan University, Rowan College at Burlington County, and Atlantic Cape Community College in attendance.

In addition to the usual Color-A-Smile and Love Letters for Literacy service projects, students also wrote for the organization Letters Against Isolation, which sends letters to Manahawkin nursing home residents. Participants also decorated canvas bags to be used in the Stockton Food Pantry. These items are to be distributed throughout the state. 

The event hosted around 30 Circle K members from the Garden Division. Moujnir Lewis, the Garden Division Lieutenant Governor and a member of Stockton Circle K, was responsible for organizing the event. 

“I’ve been planning this event for three months. A lot of the work goes into contacting the actual clubs— just a lot of email outreach, Zoom meetings, consistent communication, text messages with club presidents, etc,” Lewis said. 

Circle K has been hosting divisional and district events at schools all over the state during this service year. Stockton’s Circle K is one of the largest in the state, with over 190 members registered on OspreyHub. Students were encouraged to engage with participants from other schools. Together they watched movies and enjoyed pizza with snacks while completing the various service projects. 

“Circle K International is the largest collegiate organization of student-led servant leaders. We had representation from each club in the Garden Division; having people meet and really come together… I think it only makes our service organization stronger and allows us to do even more for the community,” Lewis said.
