Quarterly Commodities Packing and Delivery to Disadvantaged Families
For several years, the Knights of Columbus at St. Thomas Catholic Church and the Tellico Village Kiwanis Club have partnered together to pack and deliver commodities to disadvantaged families in Lenoir City. These commodities
are provided by the Mid-East Community Action Agency (MECAA) for Loudon County.
This past March, just before Covid-19 took over, the Knights of Columbus and the Kiwanis Club gathered at Memorial Hall in Lenoir City to unload a trailer of food, pack the food items in grocery bags, and deliver them to the families identified by MECAA. The Knights of Columbus help with unloading the truck and packing. Kiwanis members then packed the grocery bags into their cars and deliver the food. We packed food for 41 families. Each family received five bags of groceries; with each bag weighing approximately 20 pounds. Over 4,000 pounds of food were packed and delivered! No small feat indeed.
The families are so grateful for the service and receipt of the food. We are thankful we can help make a difference. ... See MoreSee Less

ROBOTICS PROGRAM. THE FUTURE IS NOW!
Back in March 2017, our Kiwanis member Jerry Covert, had a dream of bringing Robotics into our local schools. He spearheaded the Kiwanis Robotics/STEM Program. His unrelenting commitment and enthusiasm made his dream a reality. Working with Technology Officers Jennifer Malone of Loudon County Schools, and Dr. Chris Smallen of Lenoir City Schools, the Robotics/STEM Program began in three Middle Schools of Loudon County and Lenoir City. Dr. Mark Buckner of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Gordon Williams of Roane State Community College offered their assistance and support.
Three years later teachers estimate over 2,200 past and current STEM students have been trained. STEM students receive instruction on robotics each day at all 5 middle/intermediate schools and Loudon High School.
On March 6th, 2020 an Inaugural Battle of the Bridge Competition was held at Loudon County North Middle School. Three schools participated. It was an incredible accomplishment for the students, teachers, sponsors, the Kiwanis Club of Tellico Village, but above all Jerry Covert.
Kiwanis Club of Tellico Village, Provision, the family of Russ Hanson and the schools have invested over $47,000 in the Kiwanis Robotics/STEM Program. An investment in the lives of children, an investment in their future! We are making a difference! One child at a time! One community at a time! ... See MoreSee Less
