What We Do
Fill a Backpack for A Precious Child
Our Kiwanis club purchased school supplies to fill over fifty backpacks for A Precious Child while they were unable to allow volunteers into their facility during the Covid pandemic. Over the years, we have supported A Precious Child on several of their outreach programs.
Move-In Kits for the DreamMakers Project
The club supported the DreamMakers Project, which supports youth aging out of foster care, with move-in kits from purchased and donated household items.
Arapahoe Ridge Elementary Giving Tree
Our Kiwanis club organizes a community giving tree for the families the school identifies as the most in need, so that these children feel supported by their community. For this effort, our club won the Signature Project contest for the Rocky Mountain district in 2020.
Gifting of Bedding and Winter Necessities
Our Kiwanis club hosted a gifting event of bedding from Sweet Dream in a Bag, winter coats from A Precious Child, and hats and mittens from Lockstep Mortgage for families in need at a local elementary school.
Teacher Appreciation Contest
During quarantine, our club was able to remotely conduct a Teacher Appreciation contest where ten teachers were selected from the nominations received and were given an appreciation basket and publicly recognized for their amazing efforts during the pandemic.
Healthcare Appreciation Cards
Our Kiwanis Club set up collection boxes on member’s porches to collect cards of thanks for local healthcare workers serving our community during the Covid-19 crisis.
Adams County Caseworker Appreciation Luncheon
Adams County foster care case workers do SO MUCH! With a grant received from the RMDKF and support from our corporate sponsors, the club was able to thank them with a luncheon for national case worker appreciation month.
Key Club Sponsorships
Our Kiwanis club supports service projects, facilitates meetings, and provides mentorships for the Key Club students. We are currently sponsoring the Thornton High School Key club.
