The Kiwanis Club of Greater Omaha is involved in many community affairs! The club volunteers for reading to the second graders at Sacret Heart plus sponsors the class by helping the class purchase electronic equipment to use in the classroom, take the class on an outing like the zoo, bring the class to the Kiwanis weekly meeting to witness how we run a meeting, Also the club reaches out to the community and helps with yard cleanup for people who are unable to do that work themselves. The club also volunteers at ALL PLAY which is an organization that lets all the handicap play baseball. We sponsor a team and help with the cleanup and operation of the snack bar. In the Summer the club helps out with the Special Olympics by volunteering to help out with the Long Jump activity. During the holiday season the club rings bells for the Salvation Army. The club’s main theme are the Children in need. The international club sponsors a drive to eliminate a disease or a problem through out the world that can possibly be stopped. Where ever the need the Kiwanis Club will see that they will try and help.
Friday, during the school year. Kiwanians give up their lunch hour to read with second graders. The Sacred Heart is a private school and truly appreciates the volunteerism.
Kiwanians are involved in the community. From volunteer hours with their personal religious organizations to leaf clean up for elderly members of our community, our Kiwanis club is actively making Omaha better.
All Play is an exceptional program Kiwanians across Omaha support. We participate in spring clean-up. Getting the field ready for the players. And all season long acting as buddies, umpires and other volunteerism for All Play.
Kiwanis supports a UNO scholarship.
Many Kiwanians serve as mentors in the Teammates system.
Special Olympics is a awe inspiring moment of volunteerism. Measuring the long jump is more about encouraging participants to do their best as much as how far anyone can jump!
Every holiday season, the Kiwanians man a Saturday with the bells! Always a reminder of how generous people can be!
The Kiwanis Club of Greater Omaha supports the international Eliminate program.
Through The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus—a deadly disease that steals the lives of 34,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year.
We did it! We reached our fundraising goal, raising US$110 million in cash and pledges since 2010. However, our job is not done yet.
Now, more than ever, we are determined to finish what we started. Mothers and babies in 15 countries are depending on Kiwanis. They’re waiting for us to fulfill our pledges—so we can turn promises into funding; funding into vaccines; and vaccines into lives saved and futures protected. The end of this disease means the beginning of better health for so many of these families.
Kiwanis offers a special thank you to our dedicated campaign volunteers and donors for their passionate and generous efforts to save and protect mothers and babies.
