K-Kids Sponsor


K-Kids is the largest service organization for elementary school students, with more than 985 clubs worldwide. K-Kids was originally developed by and modeled after Kiwanis International. Kiwanis de Amigos has sponsored a K-Kids club at Tucson’s Douglas Elementary School since 2010. The K-Kids discover their passion to serve, desire to lead and their ability to engage and collaborate with others to better the school and community. The 5th and 6th graders learn leadership through service. They take on the responsibility of running their club with the help and guidance of a teacher and a club advisor as they plan and participate in community service projects such as assisting the elderly with chores or organize community food drives.    

       Our K-Kids serve their school by sponsoring a Winter Coats Exchange, help the Salvation Army’s Christmas holiday dinner by creating center pieces. They have conducted fund-raising drives, selling sunglasses and water bottles, and donating proceeds to elderly facilities and the local Animal Care Center.

Flowing Wells Family Resource Center

For several years Kiwanis de Amigos has been contributing support to the Flowing Wells Family Resource Center by purchasing needed clothing and personal items for students, and domestic supplies and foodstuff for them and their families each month or a total of about $2500 each year.

      The mission of the Flowing Wells Family Resource Center program is to improve educational opportunities by removing some of the barriers to student success. Providing families with resources for basic social, educational, health and mental health services ensure that children come to school ready to learn.
