The goal of Kiwanis is improving the world one child at a time. Most of our activities are for and with schools, students and other organizations that support children. At our last meeting we approved a college scholarship for Emily Mondragon a graduating senior at Montgomery High School. Emily has been an active volunteer at her high school Kiwanis Key Club. Our Kiwanis Club sponsors Key Clubs at Montgomery and Maria Carrillo High Schools. We also approved funds to buy dictionaries for all 2nd graders at Kenwood School and approved funds for purchasing library books at Luther Burbank School. Your donations at our fund raisers is used in these ways to support children and further their education, and we thank you for helping us to help children.
