The O’Fallon Kiwanis Club is a group of local volunteers that is changing the community one child at a time. Activities of the Club include sponsorship of Key Clubs in local high schools and Builder’s Clubs in local middle schools, cleaning up the streets of O’Fallon and supporting the O’Fallon Police Department’s Safety Town Program. Members raise money to give away as Scholarships to high school seniors, donate books to children to enhance literacy, and work to help the Salvation army. Come join us for Lunch the 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 5th Thursdays of the month at J.J.’s Restaurant at 200 S. Veterans Memorial Parkway in O’Fallon. The 4th Thursday of the month is our Social Fundraising Night where we invite friends, neighbors and family to join us for dinner at various restaurants to raise money for children around the world.

WHAT IF YOU COULD SAVE A BABY’S LIFE?
Kiwanis Clubs all over the world are working to save babies from a dreaded disease called Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus (MNT). This disease kills one baby every eleven minutes — that’s 60,000 babies every year who will never grow up, make their mothers laugh, play with friends or dream about the future. The effects of the disease are excruciating — tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch. A significant number of mothers die from MNT each year too. The O’Fallon Kiwanis Club has pledged to raise over $16,000 to help eliminate MNT and the Club has almost reached their Goal. The Social Fundraising meetings each moth is another way that this Goal will be met. Come join us in our efforts to save a baby!
