“Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time.”

 

 

Kiwanis Name

 

The name “Kiwanis” means “we trade” or “we share our talents.” It was coined from an American Indian expression, “Nunc Kee-wanis.”

Kiwanians are volunteers changing the world through service to children and communities. Kiwanis members help shelter the homeless, feed the hungry, mentor the disadvantaged, and care for the sick. They develop youth as leaders, build playgrounds, raise funds for pediatric research, and much more. No problem is too big or too small. Why? Because working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. When you give a child a chance to learn, experience, dream, and succeed, great things happen!

 

Kiwanis in Old Bridge

Old Bridge Kiwanis

 

In March of 2003, Gwen Walding was commissioned to form new Kiwanis Clubs in New Jersey as a part of her being Governor of Kiwanis’ New Jersey District. She began visiting businesses in Old Bridge looking for people willing to spend some time helping children in the community.

After several meetings, 20 members signed on to make the club official. The charter meeting took place at a local restaurant on June 6, 2003.

Since then, the club’s membership has remained steady, and new members are always welcome.

With its main focus on aid for children in our community the Kiwanis Club of Old Bridge has begun to prove its place in benefiting Old Bridge.
