Kiwanis is an international service organization dedicated to helping the children and youth of the world “one child and one community at a time”. In support of this goal the Oakmont Kiwanis Club
is engaged in a number of projects helping children and youth in Sonoma County and supports efforts by selected community organizations.
Among these projects is active involvement with students at Luther Burbank and Kenwood elementary schools, Lawrence Cook middle school, and Montgomery high school that includes sponsoring and mentoring student service clubs and student leadership groups, awards for academic and citizenship achievement, providing needed resources such as English-Spanish dictionaries for each student and library resources, maintenance of vegetable gardens and landscaping, mentoring of individual students and similar activities.
The club also supports needs of the Valley of the Moon Childrens’ Home and of Childrens Village of Sonoma County, Salvation Army activities related to children such as assembling and distributing bicycles and food, providing for summer activities and transportation, mentoring school children at the annual pre-school Shopathon, bell-ringing at Christmas collection pots, support for under-privileged children to attend and have transportation to the summer arts program at the Wells Fargo Center and many other projects aimed to support children and their families with other service providers.
These projects are supported by volunteer time by many members and by funds provided to organizations that are raised through Club activities such as our annual Pancake Breakfast, a Jazz Afternoon, a popular musical program and similar events.
