Lincoln Center Kiwanis provided over $30,000 in funding and 5,000 hours of volunteer time in our community this past year.
Checkout a few of the significant on-going projects:
Our club is involved with Elliott Elementary, Everett Elementary and McPhee in significant ways.
At Elliott Elementary:
We will celebrate 10 years as the Charter organization for ScoutReach Pack 404, with the Blue Gold Celebration Friday, February 10th.
Significant volunteer time is provided. Approximately $800 is given to supplement the popcorn money earned by the scouts.
Eleven 2nd and 3rd graders meet on Fridays.
Fourteen 4th and 5th graders meet on Thursdays.
We host the Kiwanis Karnival every Spring at Elliott.
A fun volunteer time for an April Saturday. Funding around $550.
This is a cooperative effort with the 4-H clubs who provide activities. The Kiwanis club provides prizes and treats.
We fund $500 for books to encourage reading at Elliott.
This is in cooperation with the CLC (Community Learning Center)
At Everett Elementary:
We pack and distribute over 170 Lincoln FoodBank backpacks. This provides nutritious food to supplement meals for the weekend.
There are a significant number of English Language Learners at Everett. We sit and work one on one with students to improve their recognition of site words. The goal is to get them to grade level as quickly as possible.
We sponsor a K-Kids at Everett. This is a service club for kids. The number of participants varies from 20-30 who meet once a week.
A significant number of volunteer hours are needed along with $750 in funding support.
We started at K-Kids at McPhee this past year. They meet on Mondays.
Gardening projects were started this past year. We are looking for new volunteers to help with this. If you are interested complete the contact form below. They had a great harvest starting mid summer, ending in November.
Our Young Children Priority 1 group provides books for Headstart/Excite children in 12 classrooms, 3 times a year. Volunteers read to a small group of children, then give each a book to take home. The club must raise $1400 to fund this project.
We have more ideas and more needs.
We need more volunteers and financial support.
