Path Forward

Arlington Kiwanis grant presentation 2012-r

Arlington Kiwanis grants support and members volunteer regularly at the Arlington Street People’s Assistance Network, now called Path Forward.

Among our service projects, we assist AFAC in bagging food supplies every second Wednesday, collect children’s books to be given gratis each child visiting the Arlington Pediatric Clinic, read to elementary students at Aspire! After-School Learning and to Randolph Elementary School children on Dr. Seuss’ birthday, assist Salvation Army ring bells for their red kettle Christmas campaign and participate in iCanShine bike program in the summer helping kids with disabilities to learn how to ride a bike. 

We support and chaperone the Key Club officers attending the state or district convention where they network with peers who will become future civic leaders.

In the last five years, we have become known for our annual blueberry sales, our biggest fundraiser. Some other  examples are Arlington Thrive, PRS Crisis Link, Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN), Aspire! After School Learning, Arlington YMCA, Arlington 4-H, Girls on the Run, Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC), National Capital Treatment & Recovery, and many others.

We support athletic clubs with soccer balls and fund high school senior graduation night, give scholarships to worthy rising college freshman and fund grants to high school mothers trying to finish their education while parenting, sometimes solo, in the Terrific Parent program.
