The Kiwanis Club of Anniston was chartered on August 23, 1920.  Kiwanians worldwide participate in projects and fundraisers that provide assistance to local charities, hospitals, schools, shelters, as well as other community organizations and individuals.  They develop youth as leaders, build playgrounds, raise funds for pediatric research, and much more.  No problem is too big or too small.  Working together, members can achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone.  When you give a child a chance to learn, experience, dream, and succeed, great things can happen!
 
KIWANIS CLUB OF ANNISTON PROJECTS:
 
• Pancake Day – started in 1985 and is our primary fundraiser.  In 2016, over $50,000 was raised.
• Back to School Shopping – started in 1983; partners with DHR to provide children new clothes, shoes
and supplies for school.  To date, over 2500 children have been helped by these shopping trips.
• Young Child Priority One – donations given to help fund a multitude of organizations that benefit children
• RIF (Reading Is Fundamental) – reading with children at Head Start.
• Tutoring Program – for local elementary schools which has been instrumental in helping Anniston’s
children achieve higher scores on state exams; tutoring at Tenth Street Elementary for since 2000.
• Adopt-A-School Program - partnering with First Presbyterian Church and Mountain View Church to help Tenth Street Elementary School through updating their playground, building an outdoor classroom area, summer YMCA camperships, etc.
• Salvation Army – work the kettle drive one day during the Christmas holiday time.
• EliMiNaTe Project - Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus.  One baby dies every 9 minutes from neonatal tetanus.  Tetanus vaccine costs $1.80 and if you become a Walter Zeller Fellow with $1,250 donation, you will save over 690 lives.
 
We continue to look for ways to make our community a better place for all the children who call Anniston home.
