What We Do

Our club meets for lunch on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month.

We volunteer in the community, providing more that 1,300 hours annually.

We raise funds, 100% of which are invested directly in the community.

We distribute grants of more than $55,000 annually to community organizations that support area children.

We award scholarships of more than $9,000 annually to Arlington high school graduates.

We sponsor leadership opportunities for youth through Key Clubs at Arlington Washington-Liberty and Yorktown High Schools.

We support the goal of eliminating maternal and neonatal Tetanus through our contribution of $52,500 to The ELIMINATE project, a global initiative of Kiwanis International and UNESCO.

We learn about our community from the speakers at our lunch meetings. Our speakers have ranged from a past Supreme Court Justice, federal and state Senators and Representatives, local government officials, authors, business executives, educators and representatives of other Arlington organizations.

We have several hands-on volunteer projects, including sorting and bagging food for Arlington Food Assistance Center, participation in an after-school program reading to children, working with the Arlington Chamber on its MLK Day of Service, and other one-time projects as they occur.

We interact with Kiwanians in other clubs by inviting them to our meetings and by sending representatives to their meetings.
