The Lafayette Kiwanis clubs are a vital part of the community. Their projects pop up wherever there seems to be an unmeet need of children. It is particularly the "hole-plugging" that really impresses me. If you've got a good idea for a project whose need is obvious but seems to fall between the cracks I'd say that you'd be wise to think of Lafayette Kiwanis earlier rather than later.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The most visible is their continued support of local parks and local parks equipment that encourages the participation of all children. But the less visible, largely educational, work is immensely important as well.

How did you learn about this organization?

I learned about the organization via friends and colleagues who are members. They are uniformly among those I most admire for their quiet work to aid our community.
