 Kiwanis Club of Arlington

Serving the Arlington Community for more than 80 years!

 
To learn more about Kiwanis and experience our club first hand, we invite you to join us for our weekly meetings, Wednesdays from 12:00-1:30pm at the Knights of Columbus, 5115 Little Falls Rd., Arlington, VA 22207.

We are the largest service club in Arlington, Virginia, and we are constantly seeking to enlarge and expand our membership.

What is Kiwanis?

Mission: Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time.


Who do we Serve?  
 
Our club serves the children of our community and globally in a variety of ways. We support youth leadership organizations in the schools through Key Clubs at Bishop O’Connell, Washington-Lee and Yorktown High Schools, Swanson Middle School and a K-Kids Club at Arlington Traditional Elementary School. Through these clubs we promote leadership training and community service for Arlington's youth.

The combined efforts of the Kiwanis Club of Arlington and our affiliated Arlington Kiwanis Foundation funnel between $70,000-$80,000 per year to the youth organizations and other community educational and charitable organizations primarily serving the children of Arlington or Northern Virginia. Our members participate in several fundraisers during the year to raise a large portion of these funds.

In addition, the club organizes a variety of hands-on projects during the year such as bagging groceries at the Arlington Food Assistance Center, reading to young children in the schools, providing dinner to a women’s shelter and ringing bells on behalf of the Salvation Army for a week prior to Christmas. This year we were able to participate in Lose the Training Wheels, helping challenged children to learn to ride a bicycle.

We estimate that we serve approximately 5000 children each year, 2000 children with our hands-on projects and an additional 3000 children with our grants to our partner agencies.
