Projects

As Kiwanians, we are "dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time." To that end, we provide our members with numerous volunteer opportunities (at least one, and usually more, per month). Members are not expected to particiapte in every project, but there are enough different types that everyone should be able to find at leat 3 or 4 that they can help with during the year.

Many of our legacy projects are listed in the sidebar on the right (click to learn more about any of them). In addition, you can visit our calendar page to see more of our projects and when they are scheduled.

National Pancake Day

Kiwanis partner IHOP is holding their annual National Pancake Day to raise funds for Children's Miracle Network (another Kiwanis partner) 7AM-7PM on Tuesday, March 7, 2017. IHOP is asking for Kiwanis members to sign up to just walk around and greet guests, let them know what National Pancake Day is all about, and to encourage them to make a donation to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals in exchange for the free pancakes.

To volunteer at your local IHOP, see the link below. Shifts are only 2 hours; one or two volunteers per shift are needed. This is a great way to help our partners raise money for kids, and gain exposure for Kiwanis at the same time!
