Since 1949, Sussex Kiwanis has endorsed the mission of the international organization by providing support for local children of all ages. Sponsoring youth clubs, providing monetary support for programs, and offering scholarships for college-bound students.
Youth clubs organize their own community service projects and their members can attend regional leadership development meetings to further prepare them for a fulfilling life ahead. Sussex Kiwanis members set their sights on helping local children reach their full potential and understand the nature of giving back to their community. The club has provided equipment for schools and special needs students.
Funding has also been provided for a playground at a local school designed for students with disabilities. Assisting local families and their children, as well as seniors needing support. Over the years, a considerable amount has been awarded through scholarships for students who demonstrate exceptional commitment to the club’s mission. Funds necessary to support these goals are obtained through various fundraising events like local fairs, an annual auction, centerpiece and flower sales, etc. Potential members are always welcome to observe and become part of our family.
