Making a difference within the school and community is what Kiwanis K-Kids is all about! Club members identify needs within the school and community and develop a plan of action to meet those needs. Whether it’s collecting coats and canned goods for those in need or organizing a teacher appreciation event, K-Kids members have the opportunity to work together with Kiwanis-family volunteers to make the community and the world a better place.

K-Kids can provide opportunities for students to discover their heart to serve. When students discover their heart to serve, they decide that serving others is a new, exciting way of life. The service club experience at a young age can help students accept their own ability to make a difference, enhance their knowledge of their own passions and convictions, and develop their ability to empathize with those in need in their communities.

K-Kids is a service club for students in elementary school. It’s led by elementary students and teaches the value of helping others by taking part in community service projects.

Lake Hiwatha K-Kids is sponsored by Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany.
