Kiwanis is an organization of service and community minded individuals who support children and young adults around the world. One of the top priorities for the St. Charles Club is, "Young Children: Priority One." This initiative places continuing focus on the needs of children in the Fox Valley communities.
Because of the generosity of the community, our club has been able to award monetary grants to over 30 agencies dealing with children in the Tri-City area during the past fiscal year. Click here for a full list.
