Levittown Bristol Kiwanis

Volunteer Service Organization

Service Projects each year

Kiwanis One Day: ( held the first Saturday of April each year)    April 2012 our club cleaned up the tot lot playground on Mill Creek

                                                                    Parkway (Violetwood Section- Levittown) and readied it for the new playground

                                                                     equipment that was purchased with donated funds of more than $12,000.

                                                                    

 Reading to Children:  our club members find numerous ways to read to children each year.  Whether it is in their own classrooms, with the Builders Club, at YWCA summer camp or even a few local day cares

 

 Salvation Army:  each Christmas season our club members ring the bell for the Salvation Army during their annual Red Kettle Campaign

 

Not only do our members make large contributions of food to the Emergency Relief Association each year, but they also volunteer weekly to help stock the shelves or pass food out to the citizens that need extra support. (Each month from April 2012 to May 2013, our club is donating $200 toward the purchase of eggs and $200 toward the purchase of produce to this pantry. )

 

Visiting Shut-ins:  members of the club take the time each week to visit with former members and elderly friends whom no longer can get out of the house due to illness

The Bun Run:  each night different Levittown Bristol Kiwanians go to our local bakery for their leftovers that would typically be thrown away and instead deliver them to the American Red Cross Homeless Shelter, the Salvation Army and other areas of need

Operation Helping Hand:  each spring members of our club to pick up thousands of pounds of food from schools throughout Bucks County for the local pantries:  the ERA and St. Mary's Cupboard
