Kiwanis continues to serve community

The Kiwanis Club recently wrapped up a school supply drive for local schools.

ew Holstein’s Kiwanis Club continues to be a strong servant in the community, as witnessed by the busy month the club had in August.

Throughout the month, the club coordinated a school supply drive to make sure New Holstein students had everything they need to start the school year right. Items were dropped off by the public at several locations throughout the community. The club is then delivering the backpacks, pencils, pens, scissors, notebooks, three-ring binders, tissues, hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes, hand soap and other typical school supplies to the schools.

On Friday, Aug. 13 the New Holstein Kiwanis Club provided free admission to the New Holstein Aquatic Center to the first 100 participants to take advantage of the special day.

Then on Monday, Aug. 16 the Kiwanis Club sponsored a Bingo Party and hosted lunch at the pavilion in  New Holstein’s Civic Park for the Aktion Club.

Aktion Club is the only service club for adults with disabilities, with more than 10,000 members worldwide. Club members become competent, capable, caring leaders through the vehicle of service. The motto of Aktion Clubs is “Where development has no disability.”

The New Holstein Kiwanis Club is part of Kiwanis International, a global community of clubs, members and partners dedicated to improving the lives of children one community at a time. It has more than 550,000 members from K-Kids to Key Club to Kiwanis and many ages in between in 80 countries and geographic areas. 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 and complete more than 19 million service hours a year. Every year, Kiwanis clubs raise more than $100 million to support community causes—in addition to supporting the Kiwanis Children’s Fund.

Kiwanis International is organized into clubs, divisions, districts and international. This multi-leveled leadership hierarchy means members are supported by a larger network of leaders who are prepared to help clubs be successful while improving communities.

The New Holstein Kiwanis Club is seeking new members to continue to provide service to the community. Anyone interested in joining the club or getting more information can contact D Hankins at d@newholsteinlibrary.org or call 920-898-5165.
