MATTHEWS, NC – If you are interested in helping children and communities in need or contributing to improving their social life, these organizations below are perfect for you.

Kiwanis Club

A volunteer organization was established in 1915 with a focus on helping the community to provide support for the development of the children in need. It offers leadership training, education or motivation for members, and developing resources that involve the community. Kiwanis Club also plays a role in fighting hunger, improving literacy, and offering guidance because they are aware that every community has different needs.

Some clubs that are under the help of the Kiwanis organization include Aktion Club that provides leadership training for adults with disabilities, K-Kids for primary school students to learn about self-empowerment, and Builders Club for 11-14 years old students to learn about improving self-esteem and life skills.

For detailed information about events and programs organized by Kiwanis, you may visit their website.

Some of their services provide basic household needs for those who meet the requirements, give vouchers to shop at their thrift store, transportation, back-to-school, holiday support, and housing or utility assistance.
