How We Serve Kids

At the heart of our Kiwanis Club is the desire to help Kids. The O’Fallon Kiwanis supports local schools by involvement in the Scholastic Book Program, O’Fallon Police Safety Town Summer Program, Boys & Girls State Scholarships, and sponsoring Kiwanis Builders Clubs (Middle School) and Key Clubs (High Schools).

Scholastic Books & Backpack Program

Each year our club buys books from one of our partners (Scholastic Books) to present to the Progress South Elementary School so they can put books into the backpacks of children receiving bags of food on the weekends. Faculty from Progress South actually select which books they want to give to the children from a catalog that we supply from Scholastic Books. Our goal is to promote literacy by making sure children have books at home to read!

Scholarships

Our Kiwanis club raises funds for college and vocational/ trade school scholarships every year.

Kiwanis Club Of O’Fallon recognizes that not all graduating seniors will be attending four year colleges. We offer scholarships not only to students planning to attend college but also to those students planning a career in a trade or vocational area such as nursing, healthcare, culinary, welding, automotive or related STEM programs. O’Fallon Kiwanis is changing with the times and is adjusting to the needs of our future leaders.

Scholarships for O’Fallon Police Department’s Safety Town

Each year we offer scholarships to families of preschool children to attend the O’Fallon Police Department’s Safe Town. We want to reach those families that cannot afford to send their children to this terrific learning opportunity during the summer. The O’Fallon Police reach out to people in the community and then offer these scholarships from our Kiwanis club.
