Levittown Bristol Kiwanis

Volunteer Service Organization

What Is Kiwanis?

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world, one child and one community at a time.

Kiwanians are volunteers changing the world through service to children and communities. Kiwanis members help shelter the homeless, feed the hungry, mentor the disadvantaged, and care for the sick. They develop youth as leaders, build playgrounds, raise funds for pediatric research, and much more. No problem is too big or too small. Why? Because working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. When you give a child a chance to learn, experience, dream, and succeed, great things happen!

For more than a century, Kiwanis has created opportunities for children to be curious, safe and healthy regardless of the community in which they live. It’s a mark we all proudly leave on the world. 

Kiwanis International is a global community of clubs, members and partners dedicated to improving the lives of children one community at a time.  Today, we stand with more than 550,000 members from K-Kids to Key Club to Kiwanis and many ages in between in 80 countries and geographic areas.  Each community has different needs, and Kiwanis empowers members to pursue creative ways to serve the needs of children, such as fighting hunger, improving literacy and offering guidance.


Kiwanis clubs host nearly 150,000 service projects each year.

Levittown-Bristol Club History

The Levittown-Bristol Kiwanis Club was founded by a group of local Business men in 1954.  It has been an active club since that time.  The signature project of the club in those days was to provide some Christmas gifts for children in need.  The club members partnered with local boy scout troops who went from door to door seeking donations.  Eventually the club partnered with the Bucks County Courier Times newspaper to seek donations from the community at large.  From this humble beginning the club has expanded to helping those in need in the community with a primary focus on helping children and families with children.  We currently have 30 members in 2021.
