Maywood Kiwanis Builders Club helps children, seniors
March 18, 2014
The latest addition to the Kiwanis Club of Issaquah family is the Maywood Middle School Kiwanis Builders Club.
The chartering of the Maywood Builders Club was initiated two years ago by Key Clubber Lisa Antonio, currently lieutenant governor of PNW Key Club Division 28. It took two years to find a faculty adviser, Samantha Neff.
With her leadership, the Kiwanis Maywood Builders Club recently engaged Kiwanis and Key Club with the project of making hospital dolls for Seattle Children’s. Doctors use the dolls to explain medical procedures by drawing the procedure on a doll, which is then given to the patient.
Club members also made paper flowers to be given to the Spiritwood at Pine Lake assisted living community in Sammamish to brighten the day of the residents.
Kiwanis is a global service organization of “volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time.” The Kiwanis family consists of K-Kids for elementary schoolers, Builders Club for middle school, Key Club for high school, Circle-K for colleges and universities, and Aktion Club for adult with disabilities.
The Kiwanis Club of Issaquah was founded in 1929 and sponsors Atwork!, the Aktion Club of Salmon County, Key Clubs at Issaquah and Liberty high schools, and a Kiwanis Builders Club at Pacific Cascade Middle School.
