“I don't know what I would do if I couldn't have a shower and clean clothes. Being homeless is one thing but trying not to look or smell homeless is everything to me.  Thank you so much for your hygiene donations!-Fox Valley Warming Shelter Client
 
 
Nothing says Christmas time like the Christmas tree! The smell of the pine, the twinkling of the lights – it’s magical.  What also is magical about the holiday season is volunteering.  The Appleton Christmas Parade committee was seeking a volunteer organization to take ownership over the Tree Lighting Ceremony in City Park prior to the Appleton Christmas Parade and the Appleton Fox Cities Kiwanis was up to the task. 
 
 
On Saturday, December 5th, the Appleton Fox Cities Kiwanis Club and the Appleton North Key Club hosted a Breakfast with Santa for around 100 children from various nonprofit agencies.  The youth spend the morning at the Building for Kids having breakfast, meeting Santa, (who had presents for them) and playing in the museum.
 
 
The 2014-2015 Kiwanis year was another outstanding year for the Appleton Fox Cities Kiwanis service club and celebrated the year at their recognition breakfast on September 25th at the Grand Meridian in Appleton.  The Appleton Fox Cities Kiwanis Club provided over 2,800 hours of service to the community during the Kiwanis calendar year.
 
 
 
 
 
Since 1981, Octoberfest has been bringing people to downtown Appleton in the spirit of community pride and celebration.
 
 
The Appleton Fox Cities Kiwanis, The Building for Kids, and CASA of the Fox Cities would like to thank everyone who participated in the 12th Annual Golf Fore Children event as well as those who worked tirelessly on the planning. These collective efforts and contributions resulted in raising some great money for each organizations charities.
 
 
In celebration of Kiwanis International celebrating 100 years of community service, the Appleton Fox Cities Kiwanis Club partnered with the Appleton Parks, Recreation and Facilities Management Department to install 2-5 year old focused playground equipment to Green Meadow Park in Appleton.    The Kiwanis Club’s “Gift of Play” investment to the park was around $12,000.  The playground build happened on July 11th and with 20 members putting the equipment together, by 12:00pm the new playground system was complete. 
 
 
 
The Appleton Fox Cities Kiwanis Club has once again partnered with 91.9/91.5 The Family and the Help the Homeless Campaign. Our club delivered the boxes to the various locations and also helped with the pick-up efforts.
 
 
We have wonderful news to share! The World Health Organization’s validation survey confirmed that Mauritania has eliminated maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT). Thanks to the generosity of Kiwanis members around the world, UNICEF and its partners, 36 countries have now officially declared victory over the pain and suffering of MNT. We are changing the world.

 
 
 
 
It would be difficult to explain, in a few short words, why we, as American Kiwanis, should become passionate about the Eliminate Project that Kiwanis International has adopted as our next world project.
 
 
 
Kiwanis International is a thriving organization of service-minded men and women who respond to the unique needs of their communities and address worldwide issues by "Serving the Children of the World."
