More than 20 Members of the Kiwanis Club of Kirkland valiantly came forth and braved the snow and ice to meet at 7:00 a.m. on February 9th to put together almost 1000 sack lunches for the Special Olympics King County 2014 Regional basketball tournament.
Kiwanis Club of Kirkland has been providing meal support for Special Olympics for more than 10 years with continued support from eastside businesses. If you would like more information about Special Olympics visit their website at http://www.specialolympicswashington.org.
An all volunteer organization, the Kiwanis Club of Kirkland, along with their affiliate organization, the Kirkland Kiwanis Foundation, benefits the Kirkland community in a variety of ways including academic scholarships, the Bill Petter Memorial Scholarship in transportation technology, assistance with orthodontic care through the Keller Memorial Fund, middle and high school leadership programs, school supplies to disadvantaged children, supporting KITH and KTUB, Eastside Baby Corner and much more. If you would like more information, please visit http://kirkland.kiwanis.org, or contact Club Secretary Matt Gregory at (425) 828-0231. Or, better yet, attend one of their lively Wednesday lunch meetings at 12:00pm at Hector’s in downtown Kirkland.
