Kiwanis continues raising funds to support children in Saanich and around the world

In 1936, the Kiwanis Club of Victoria began its support of the Greater Victoria area school crosswalk guard program. A lot has changed in the last 80 years, but Kiwanis hasn’t.

We’re still here, working hard, raising money, to support the latest crop of young volunteers in Saanich. We take very seriously the Kiwanis motto: “Changing the world, one child and one community at a time.”

To learn a little more about how Kiwanis is feeding school kids, protecting teens and housing seniors, spare a moment of your busy day and give us a visit at facebook.com/kiwanisvictoria or search our hashtag: #kidsneedkiwanis. You’ll be glad you did.
