Our club is involved in a variety of projects that involve fundraising, community service, and assisting children locally and worldwide. Below are the projects in which we are currently involved and have done in the past:
Reading is Fundamental: We prepare and motivate children to read by delivering free books and literacy resources to those children and families who need them most. We inspire children to be lifelong readers through the power of choice. We provides new, free books for children at local Head Start programs. The seeds of inspiration in these books have motivated children to follow their dreams and achieve their potential. Yes, it seems incredible for a book to launch a life, but it happens every day as hungry, inquisitive young minds reach out and grab hold of the new people, places, and ideas that books bring them.
Bicycle Rodeos: CCKC sponsors bicycle rodeos at the West End and Chisholm Units of the Boys and Girls Club of the River Region. Bicycles are purchased and awarded to the Club Member who scores the highest in their age group. Each B&G Club member will ride the bikes, doing agility type competitions. Gift cards are awarded to second and third place. Everyone that participates in the rodeo has his or her name put in the "hat" for the chance for a bike...that way everyone has a chance to win a bike regardless of their bike riding ability.
Kiwanis Olympics: Kiwanians volunteer every Veterans Day at the River Region Boys and Girls Club. For years now, we have exposed the kids to Ultimate Frisbee, headed up by Michael Fritz, a Veteran himself.
