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.

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

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.
