What kinds of service projects do Kiwanis members do?
If you love children, the Quincy Noon Kiwanis Club is the service club for you. Many activities are focused on service to children but several times a year, we roll up our sleeves and provide physical labor to a needy organization. Here are some of our favorite activities:
Bringing Up Grades (BUG) is a special recognition program to encourage Fourth Graders to bring up their grades.
Children’s Christmas Party for third graders from Washington, Dewey and/or Berrian Schools.
Camp Saukenauk where children from the Salvation Army Day Camp Program get to
enjoy traditional camp activities, all facilitated by Kiwanis volunteers.
Dictionary Distribution to all third grade student in Adams County.
SAA Banquet for high school seniors from Adams County to celebrate their academic success.
Read Around the World, a program where Kiwanis members read to every second grade class at Washington School and encourage reading for pleasure.
Sponsored Youth. Hoping to groom leaders for the future, our club sponsors a Kiwanis Builder’s Club (for junior high students) at St. Dominic School, Kiwanis Key Clubs at Quincy High School and Quincy Notre Dame, and a Circle K Club at Quincy University.
Aktion Club, a new Kiwanis Club for people with disabilities was created in 2008. The club has blossomed into an active organization based at Transitions. Aktion Club members often join us for service projects.
Meals on Wheels Delivery each Thanksgiving Day. Many Kiwanians include their children, which, of course, delights the seniors.
Salvation Army Bell Ringing with friends and family.
Souper Bowl of Caring, a national food drive for local pantries culminating on Super Bowl Sunday.
Kiwanis One Day, a worldwide day of local service involving the entire Kiwanis family.
Special Projects. Every now and then, the club takes on a special project.
