Geyserville & Petaluma Kiwanis Clubs Boost Regional Bookmobile Service
Written by admin, December 19th, 2018   

One of the joys of working on board the Free Bookmobile is meeting all the dedicated folks who have been helping kids a lot longer than we have! Kiwanis International is a global network of clubs, members and partners dedicated to improving the lives of children one community at a time. Today, they comprise more than 600,000 members from K-Kids to Key Club to Kiwanis and many ages in between in more than 80 countries. Each community has different needs, and Kiwanis empowers members to pursue creative ways to serve the needs of children, such as fighting hunger, improving literacy and offering guidance. Kiwanis clubs host nearly 150,000 service projects each year.
Here in Sonoma County, we are grateful for the support of the Geyserville and Petaluma Kiwanis Clubs this fall. They have both made generous donations to make sure we have the resources to promote literacy and love of reading among their respective resident families. The Geyserville Kiwanis Club is involved in myriad activities, including their signature Fall Colors & Vintage Car Show fundraiser event, with all proceeds benefitting local charities, scholarship programs and youth activities. The Petaluma Kiwanis Club, which was chartered in 1954, donates about $80,000 to education scholarships, community projects and non-profit organizations each year. The Club also has its own service projects and is a proud sponsor of student clubs and activities at local schools.
Thank you, Kiwanis Clubs, and keep up the good work!
