Newly Chartered Kiwanis Club of Greater Dover Makes Impact with School Supplies Donation
DOVER — At their inaugural meeting, the newly formed Kiwanis Club of Greater Dover jump-started their community service with a school supplies drive. All donations were generously given to the “Excellence Family Success Center.”
Situated at 73 Bassett Highway, the Excellence Family Success Center focuses on addressing the healthcare requirements of New Jersey’s women, infants, and children. By orchestrating educational initiatives, outreach, and advocacy, the center plays a pivotal role in shaping the state’s healthcare landscape.
Chartered by Kiwanis International on August 31, the Kiwanis Club of Greater Dover began its journey with 15 pioneering members. Remarkably, within a short span, they’ve welcomed four more members to their fold. Part of a global network, Kiwanis is rooted in the belief of making a global difference through localized efforts – transforming communities and young lives one step at a time. The magic happens when members unite; achieving collectively what would be impossible individually.
The Greater Rockaway Kiwanis Club played a sponsoring role in the formation of the Dover counterpart. To dive deeper into the Dover chapter’s endeavors and vision, visit www.doverkiwanis.org.
If your club would like to have a table or do a service project of your own at this day of volunteering in our community, or just come hang with us, please join! Table signups end Sept. 29 Www.pointpleasantkiwanis.org/pointsgiving. Blessing Bag and BookSmiles will be there along with lots of other groups hosting projects.
