Kiwanis Club of Elizabethtown ​ was such a huge help to use this season - from passing out popsicles on a hot, hot day to keeping the kiddos in order in the finish chute to cheering loudly for our runners!

THANK YOU to all of our Kiwanis volunteers! We are looking forward to meeting even more of you next season!
Kiwanis Club of Elizabethtown has your football food!
We had a very special delivery today! Students from the Elizabethtown Area School District Academy Class read about the partnership between the Kiwanis Club of Elizabethtown and the Community Cupboard to provide healthy snacks for kids that shop at the Cupboard. So the Academy Class, which consists of students from Elizabethtown Area High School and Elizabethtown AreaMiddle School, purchased and donated a very large variety of healthy snacks!

This will help many children in the E-town School District. Thank you students for helping your neighbors in need!!!

***The first picture is the students of the Academy Class, and Mrs. Fields and Mr. Higgins. The second picture is of our now fully stocked healthy snack shelves (and we still have more in storage!)***
Get some tasty chicken and support the Kiwanis Club of Norlanco-Rheems next Saturday 12/14. Contact me for your presale tickets.
We want to give a big THANK YOU to the Elizabethtown Kiwanis family! The Kiwanis Club of Elizabethtown set out on a mission to promote healthy snacks for kids.

They built the shelf, made the banners and signs, and will be putting out nutritional facts for the kids who shop at the Cupboard. Each family will get to pick one healthy snack per child in their household as an added bonus!

Kiwanis supplied the first round of healthy snacks and will be holding donation drives at the Kiwanis Club, Elizabethtown College Circle K, and the Elizabethtown Key Club to help sustain the healthy snacks. If you would like to contribute to the healthy snack initiative, you may drop off donations in our 24 hour drop off located outside of our building, or during our open hours. Thank you Kiwanis Club of E-town, for promoting this healthy cause!!!!

Great write-up on Elizabethtown College Circle K President Cassidy Dunn's upcoming 4k for Cancer where she will run from Baltimore to San Francisco to raise funds for the Ulman Foundation. Learn more about her efforts and how you can contribute to her fundraising goals at the article below.

Cassidy Dunn ’21 M23, a current MBA student and Business Data Science alumna, is running across the country this summer as part of the Ulman 4K for Cancer. Dunn and her team of approximately 15 runners will be starting the 4K in Baltimore on June 26 and will make their way to San Francisco by August 13, with each member of her team running six to 16 miles a day in a relay-style run.

“Cancer has such a huge impact on lives and when people our age get cancer it is often forgotten and not thought about as much,” Dunn said. “Hearing stories about how almost everyone I meet is impacted by cancer inspires me to keep going so I can make even just a small difference.”

Wine Raffle Drawing! Apologies that it took a while to post ... had to get some other things done, then it was trying to figure out technology! Also, apologies for the cicadas in the background! ...

Again, thank you to all who donated to the wine raffle! The money we collected will be put towards benefitting the children of our community in programs like Children's Playroom, Community Cupboard Healthy Snacks initiative, Breakfast with Santa, and many more!
