Projects and Activities
Our Kiwanis club participates in a variety of projects throughout the year that involve fundraising, community service, and assisting children locally and worldwide. We help the community by supporting established services and always looking for new ways to bring resources and those who need them together.
Additionally, we have speakers at our weekly meetings to explore topics of interest to the membership. We engage in a number of social activities to share experiences, talents and our collective interests. All represent great opportunities for service, friendships and personal growth.
Below are just some of the projects and activities in which we are currently involved:
- Feeding as many people as we can - Every month our club provides dinner for individuals and families in partnership with Salvation Army, elementary school breakfast in partnership with Jubilee Reach, and dinner for people with disabilities in partnership with Highland Center.
- Giving a helping hand - Every month our club volunteers at Eastside Baby Corner helping to prepare clothes and equipment for families in need. We also work on projects through Bellevue LifeSpring.
