What We Do

Additionally, we have speakers at our weekly meetings to explore topics of interest to the membership.

KIWIN’s and Key Club Scholarships
Our Kiwanis club raises funds for KIWIN’s and Key Club scholarships every year.
Kiwanis International is a “family” of organizations that focuses on teaching young children about the responsibilities of good citizenship, community service and building future leaders.
The Kiwanis Club of Ontario California sponsors four youth clubs:
- Chaffey High School KIWIN’S
- Montclair High School Key Club
- Vina Danks Middle School Builders Club
- Buena Vista Arts integrated Magnet School K Kids
- Hawthorne Elementary School K Kids
Our sponsored youth groups independently initiate service projects and community service activities throughout the school year. Our club works through an adviser in each youth organization to coordinate our participation with their activities or to have them work with us on major service programs and fundraisers.
We are so proud of our youth groups and their accomplishments which make our community a much better place to live. The activities listed below are a small portion of the many projects they are involved in:
- Loaves and Fishes
- Rose Float decorating
- Food Drives
