My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Northside Naples Kiwanis Foundation Inc, Naples, FL, USA
I have been a m ember of North Side Naples Kiwanis for 10 years and am a Past President of the organization. North Side was chartered in 1984 and began serving the community immediately, a founding Jack Silk along with an Immokalee citizen began a project of providing a hot meal for migrant workers at Christmas. Today that project is our signature project and has evolved into giving presents to children at Christmas and even Santa and Mrs. Claus attend. We have continued with the meal and have entertainment and other activities for the children.
We are involved in the school system with our Terrific Kids and K-Kids program in the elementary school, Builders Club in a Middle School and three (3) key Clubs in our High Schools.
We are involved in other community projects such as Thanksgiving Baskets of food to needy families, working with Meals of Hope with food distribution every month to needy families, our Christmas In July project which provides clothing, school supplies and extra stuff for school children and we support a teacher in the school system with supplies for her class.
More recently we started two (2) Action Clubs, which help adult developmental challenged persons. Also, we help when disaster strikes and families need assistance.
Our club is built on an abundance of TEAMWORK and our motto is "IF EVERYONE DOES A
LITTLE, NO ONE HAS TO DO A LOT"
Hopefully you will consider our organization for a grant. Thank You, Jim Dougher , PP
