Carefree Kiwanis...We Do It For the Kids
The generous spirit of the Kiwanis of Carefree has played a role in the town's history and continues today.
Our focus is on helping children recognize and develop their potential. We offer post-secondary scholarships, summer art programs, community science fairs and mentoring, special needs support, youth service organizations and more. The vast majority of the funds we raise are invested in the children of our community; and programs benefitting the community; a postion is also donated to eradicate diseases in third world countries in conjunction with Kiwanis International initiatives and to disaster relief around the world.
Today our club has about 200 members, ranking us within the top ten largest Kiwanis clubs in the world. We believe that investing even one fraction of one's time, talents, energies and experiences will make a world of difference tomorrow.
We also believe in making friends and having fun along the way. We have parties like Western Night, mixers and more social events.
Foothills Food Bank and Resource Center
To assist the hungry and in need in the Foothills area.
In 1988, the food bank was founded because there was a large Hispanic population that was in need. Today the majority of the population that we are serving is non-Hispanic. In the beginning we would see, on average, 45 families a month. Today we see over 500 families per month.
Seniors in need are the fastest growing demographic that we serve. They struggle to make ends meet on fixed incomes. The food they receive from the Foothills Food Bank helps them to be able to pay other expenses. Donate Today! http://www.foothillsfoodbank.com/ 480.488.1145
