The Kiwanis Club of Lynnwood joined more than 600,000 other adult and youth volunteers in the Kiwanis family of service clubs in over 80 nations to celebrate their partnership in community service during the month of November. The Kiwanis Club of Lynnwood, along with two Key Clubs, marked Kiwanis Family Month by holding a food drive for the Lynnwood Food Bank Nov. 14.
Kiwanis clubs focus on changing the world by serving children, one child and one community at a time. To do this, many clubs also sponsor a Kiwanis family club—K-Kids for primary school children; Builders Clubs for adolescents; Key Clubs for teens; CKI clubs for university students and Aktion Clubs for adults living with disabilities—to reach more people and have a greater service impact on their communities.
The Kiwanis Club of Lynnwood sponsors a Key Club at Lynnwood High School and also one at Mountlake Terrace High School. A Builders Club is being formed at Alderwood Middle School. Kiwanis and its sponsored organizations promote the ideals of voluntary service as a means to improve lives and give something back to the community.
“We’re very proud to sponsor these idealistic and caring young people,” says Kiwanis club president Stephen Eddy. “Kiwanis exists to serve the community, and we believe that one of the most important services we can perform is to pass along the ideals of voluntarism and serving others to the next generation.”
