Kiwanis are volunteers changing the world through service to children and communities. Kiwanis members help shelter the homeless, feed the hungry, mentor the disadvantaged, and care for the sick. They develop youth as leaders, build playgrounds, raise funds for pediatric research, and much more. When you give a child a chance to learn, experience, dream, and succeed, great things happen!
In the Sandy club we have two main goals,
We consider our community to include the entire Oregon Trail School district. We sponsor student groups in our schools, participate in local Sandy community projects and raise money to help support our youth and those in need. Everyone pitches in at their own pace and throughout the year we raise in excess of $36,000 through fund raisers like the Fly-In/Cruise-In Pancake Breakfast and our ice cream booth at the Sandy Mountain Festival.
There are many levels of participation. Perhaps you don’t feel you have adequate time to fully participate, however, you find one or more programs to be near and dear to your heart or that you think you might enjoy participating in. Well, that’s OK that would make you a Friend of Kiwanis. Frankly there is no way we can accomplish all we do each year without the help of our Friends.
You are invited to join us; we meet at 6:30pm the first and third Thursday of each month. For the meeting location call Bill Kiggins at 503-347-5450. To become a Kiwanian is a personal decision thus you will not be pressured to join nor asked to join. Learn more about us and decide for yourself. Our meetings include a light dinner and an interesting guest speaker after which we discuss and plan our projects.
