We are having a huge food drive for The Pike Red Zone Food Pantry here in Indianapolis! Details are on flyer below. If you can’t be there to donate food or hygiene items and would like to make a donation of money–checks can be made out to: Pike High School and in the memo–food pantry. Those can be mailed to the attention of Bryce Kinder at Kiwanis International (same address as below). THANK YOU everyone for your support!
Want to join us in supporting a good cause? We are raising money for the Kiwanis Children’s Fund, to support the most urgent needs of children, especially those related to COVID-19. And right now, every dollar donated on Facebook, up to $50,000 will be matched!
As you know, we serve kids around the world. Our Kiwanis Children’s Fund has received an overwhelming number of requests from clubs who need financial assistance to help children during the COVID-19 crisis—from providing food to hungry families to essential technology for students and so much more.
We are fundraising to help meet these urgent needs of children! If you would consider donating, I can assure you your gift will be put to good use.

William H. McRaven: How I Went Through Hell Week
United States Navy admiral William H. McRaven delivers a powerful speech about the importance of doing the little things and embracing fear in life.
Make Sure you Turn On The Volume When You Get The Video Started.
It is a remarkable…powerful…inspiring speech!!
So often, I hear people say that they want to get involved and that they want to make a difference in people’s lives but they just don’t know how!
If it sounds simple…it is simple!
Join a Kiwanis Club! If not ours…one in your community! If there is not one in your community…why not check into starting one? There are so many great opportunities out there people!
BE THE DIFFERENCE!!!!
Someone there would LOVE to assist you in getting you in touch with a club in your community or helping you get one started!

Once again…our club was able to help support local Children’s hospitals by partnering with a local IHOP here in Indianapolis by volunteering to work on National Pancake Day!
We had quite a few club members volunteer to work at the store during different shifts and talk to the customers explaining to them the importance of their donations and where they would be going! Donations stay local to fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
We Are So Proud Of Our Club…Our Members….And KIWANIS INTERNATIONAL!!!
THIS….IS WHAT WE DO! And THIS….IS WHY WE DO IT!!!!
