Anthem has a new Kiwanis Club serving the community.
Kiwanis is a worldwide organization established in 1915 for the purpose of “Serving the Children of the World” by improving the world, one child and one community at a time. To achieve this goal, Kiwanis Clubs around the world are active in giving back to the community through life-changing experiences.
Kiwanis International is an international service club founded in Detroit, Michigan. It is headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, and is found in more than 80 nations and geographic areas, according to the organization’s website.
Recently formed, the Kiwanis Club of Greater Anthem Area currently has 25 members. These volunteers are actively providing services to the community including participating in the Adopt a Road Program with Maricopa County. In October, Anthem Kiwanis members helped cleanup over 20 bags of trash off the roadside and ravines between Cloud and Pioneer roads. Local members have also dropped off food to the Foothills Food Bank & Resource Center.
Regular club meetings are held the second and fourth Tuesday of every month from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Anthem Civic Center, 3701 W. Anthem Way. For additional information on the Kiwanis Club of Greater Anthem Area, visit kiwanisofgreateranthemarea.godaddysites.com/or call 623-229-6820
