I have served with the Kiwanis organization in different communities in my career, and have found this club in Matthews the best, in terms of its organization, member participation and multiplicity of projects that it is involved with. Using the talents of professional men and women, it is an active and responsible group committed to service. A key indicator of the health of the organization is that when signup sheets are passed around for projects, and when members are asked to serve in club officer roles, the nominating committees do not have a difficult time in getting positive responses and commitments. That is not always so in service organizations. If one is looking for a place to serve to the community's children outside a faith community framework, this is the place to be and go.

Kiwanis Club of Matthews is an amazing organization with a dedication to impacting the lives of the children they serve. I have had the honor of working with members of the organization through the Terrific Kids program for several years and being able to witness the positive results of their actions and programs in our community is a true blessing.

Kiwanis of Matthews is the strong but quiet organization here in town that supports primarily activities that enrich the lives of children. Terrific Kids in the elementary schools to art in the park to Bright Blessings birthday parties to a myriad of other activities that are performed. A great way to find volunteer opportunities with a solid group of people.

Kiwanis Club of Matthews impacts the community around it in meaningful, lasting ways. They help support local Key Clubs, providing opportunities for teens to give back and learn valuable life skills. The Kiwanis Club is made up of volunteers that truly care about making the world a better place. My personal experience with the Kiwanis Club is that they helped to fund my journey to the Key Club International Convention 2016. Without Kiwanis support, that trip might not have been possible. The Kiwanis Club positively impacts the local area and organizations, and a donation to this club would contribute toward creating a better world.
