Each year, the Richardson Kiwanis club and other clubs in the division (North Dallas, Plano, McKinney, Rockwall) and district (Texas and Oklahoma) raise funds and collect toys for Children’s Miracle Network. In the last 5 years, we have collected over 100,000 coloring books and crayon sets and donated an additional 15,000 dollars to CMN and Children’s Hospitals in the Dallas area.
Here’s a link directly to the CMN website where you or your organization can make a donation that will help save a child’s life. https://donations.childrensmiraclenetworkhospitals.org/
Kiwanis clubs, located in 80 nations, help their communities in countless ways. Each community’s needs are different—so each Kiwanis club is different. By working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. When you give a child the chance to learn, experience, dream, grow, succeed and thrive, great things happen.
Why become a member?
Strength in numbers. Working together with others increases the likelihood of success. The Richardson Kiwanis Club is an active group of community volunteers who provide services and guidance to children in the Richardson and North Dallas community through programs like Key Clubs, K Kids, and the Richardson Angels Sports teams. Richardson Kiwanis is also a part of a huge program for building wheelchair ramps at homes belonging to financially disadvantaged and elderly people in our city and county. Our Kiwanis Club is a great organization and we would love to have you visit with us to see what we are all about!
