Clubs in the Texas Oklahoma Kiwanis District support a wide range of programs that benefit children and families in our communities. From food pantries, school supplies, medical services, backpacks full of supplies for disaster relief and also backpacks for homeless shelters, the Kiwanis District pours hundreds of thousands of dollars each year into programs that reach those folks who have the greatest need. We are very proud of our programs and initiatives and appreciate any support you might be able to give us.
Some of the programs that we are promoting right now include the following:
Books, school supplies and crafts for children who are underserved for any reason. We help supply books to kids and help teach them to read. We also offer classes to parents.
Food drives and distribution to families who have lost jobs or are struggling to put food on tables. This includes building food pantries in schools for kids who are food insecure.
Backpacks full of supplies that will benefit homeless vets or families of vets who are employed but barely able to put food on the table or take care of basic necessities for themselves or their children.
Children’s leadership programs in elementary school, middle school, high school and at college level too. These are world famous programs and most people have heard of K-Kids, Builders Clubs, Key Clubs, and CKI.
