With our organization date in 1918, the Kiwanis Club of Wilmington is closing in
on a century of community service. In 1918 we provided coal for the less

and sponsored a major fund raiser that insured this vital project could continue.
We read to children at the Salvation Army Day Care on a scheduled regular basis.
We sponsor six Service Leadership clubs and two Aktion Clubs. We think of ourselves as
a growing force in community service. You are welcome to join us as we Serve the Children
of the World.
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and
one community at a time.
