The Kiwanis Club of Menlo Park donated $5,000 to the Menlo-Atherton Football Association, according to a Kiwanis press release.
The club presented the association -- a nonprofit that supports Menlo-Atherton High School's football team -- with a check on March 18. The the club chapter also donates $50,000 a year in academic scholarships to M-A students, the press release states.
"Our donation to the Football Association played a small role in helping support athlete and coach travel that resulted in the awarding of four full-time athletic scholarships for M-A players at Division-1 universities," said Ned Moritz, the club's president. "Our aim was to help the Football Association provide these student-athletes opportunity. The results this year have been fantastic."
The association assists M-A football players through academic support, character development, financial support and new equipment. This includes some equipment replacement, food during games away from home, and covering out-of-state travel for athletes visiting college programs or participating in summer camps.
