About Kiwanis

Kiwanis Club of Mt. Olive Township

Since 1995, the Kiwanis Club of Mt. Olive Township has been responding to the needs of our community through charitable contributions and donations of time and effort by our members in community events. Our club is part of the much larger network of Kiwanis International, a worldwide service organization in over 96 nations whose major emphasis is “Serving the Children of the World.”

Becoming a member in Kiwanis offers a great opportunity to get involved in your community, network and socialize with other members, all while making a difference in the lives of children and those in need. Some of our recent accomplishments and ongoing programs include:

  • Giving scholarships to deserving Mt. Olive High School seniors every year on the basis of community service and character.
  • Sponsoring the Mt. Olive High School Key Club.
  • Spreading joy to hundreds of township children through our annual Santa House and Easter Egg Hunt events.
  • Providing financial support to local Eagle Scout projects.
  • Donating new hardcover Meriam-Webster dictionaries to Tinc Road Elementary School.
  • Donating gift cards each year for the township’s most needy families to be used for school supplies.
  • Supporting Kiwanis International's signature global service project, "Eliminate" with the goal of eliminating Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus across the globe.

We hope you will be able to help us grow in order to serve deserving children in Mt. Olive Township. Together, we can make a difference!

Kiwanis International

Worldwide, Kiwanis clubs:

  • Assist children, young adults, the aging, and the needy
  • Improve communities
  • Encourage international understanding

Kiwanis clubs also sponsor Kiwanis-family organizations for young people and adults: K-Kids clubs in elementary schools, Builders Clubs in middle school and junior highs, Key Clubs in high schools, Circle K clubs at the collegiate level, Kiwanis Junior clubs for young adults in Europe, and Aktion clubs for adults living with disabilities. These clubs teach future world leaders the importance of helping others.

Although serving local communities is a focus, on an International level, Kiwanis’ current global campaign for children, The Eliminate Project: Kiwanis eliminating maternal/neonatal tetanus, aims to raise US$110 million and save the lives of a 129 million mothers and their future babies. In partnership with UNICEF, Kiwanis is committing by 2015 to eliminating maternal/neonatal tetanus, a disease that kills one baby every nine minutes.
