The new Kiwanis Club in Davie County will hold its final informational meeting at the Davie County Public Library on Wednesday, June 23 at 6:30 p.m.

What can Kiwanis do for Davie?

Working with local communities, Kiwanis clubs have built all-access playgrounds, restocked libraries, created food pantries, bought medical equipment, hosted diversity fairs, stuffed backpacks with school supplies and much, much more. Local projects are based on the needs of the community.

Kiwanis programs for youth and young adults help to create the next generation of community leaders. For instance, Key Club, the world’s oldest and largest service organization for high school students, encourages leadership development through service to others. Aktion Club, the only service club for adults with disabilities, helps members find purpose and self-worth through park cleanups, food drives and other projects. And programs like Bring Up Grades and Terrific Kids empower children to be accountable for themselves so they succeed in life.

“We work with partners who share our values, have the same mindset and desire to make the world a better place for children,” said Joanne LeDonne, club starter. “Landscape Structures Inc., U.S. Army, Nickelodeon, Sister Cities International, JCI, Boy Scouts of America, March of Dimes, IHOP, Rustic pathways are just a few of our partners.
