Since 1921, the Kiwanis Club of Mount Clemens has worked to benefit our local community. During this time, we have helped countless causes, organizations, and (most importantly) children. We are grateful for the opportunity to continue serving the community in the coming years. While we have Kiwanis International to thank for a great deal of our success, our continued progress would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of our members, local business, and community leaders. Learn more about our fundraisers and who we strive to support in our community.
Dictionary & Thesaurus Donations
The most crucial ingredient to a successful and thriving community is education. With tight and often declining school budgets, we take it upon ourselves to try to fill in the gaps. By donating Thesauruses and Dictionaries to children, we're not only assisting their education, but also elevating some of the costs on our schools and parents struggling with seemingly endless school supply necessities.
Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser
We host our annual Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser in (month) at (venue) to raise money for (cause). It provides a great opportunity to interact with the community and help us reach our goal of supporting (cause). Plus, who doesn't love pancakes!
Salvation Army Bell-Ringing
When Christmas is in the air, we will be outside ringing our bells to support the Salvation Army. While it's usually very cold outside, it's no bother to us at all because we know our efforts are going to warm the hearts of children and families that the Salvation Army helps.
Kiwanis Holiday Nut Sale
All across the country Kiwanis Clubs participate in the annual Holiday Nut Sale. It's yet another great opportunity to raise money that will benefit our communities and causes. Interested in participating or buying some Holiday Nuts? Contact us and we'll be in touch soon!
