Healdsburg Kiwanis Club Makes First Donation to Free Bookmobile
Written by admin, September 24th, 2017   


We are always thrilled to make new friends and partnerships toward fulfilling our mission. This one got off to a quick start! Just days after receiving a donation from Healdsburg Kiwanis Club toward our operations in their area, we were proud to collaborate on their first-ever Family Safety Fair at the Healdsburg Community Center. It was a great turnout as children received new bicycle helmets, participated in a skills rodeo, had lunch with their neighbors…and of course took home great free books!

Kiwanis Clubs have a wonderful service tradition. From the Healdsburg Club: We are members of the community, dedicated to the children of the world. We have been in Healdsburg since November 1923 and continue to support many Healdsburg organizations, families, children and important community needs. Some of the programs we support, sponsor or offer include the Relay for Life, Healdsburg High School’s Key Club, the Fitch Mountain Footrace, the Book Project, Christmas Tree Sales, FFA Food Sales, Pancake Breakfast, and many high school scholarships.

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers, dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time. The name “Kiwanis” means “we trade” or “we share our talents.” It was coined from an American Indian expression, Nunc Kee-wanis. No problem is too big or too small. Why? Because working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. When you give a child a chance to learn, experience, dream, and succeed, great things happen!
