Kiwanis Nuevo, above all else, is a SERVICE club. Our motto is Serving the Children of the World, and that we do! We have a variety of service projects which support our sponsored schools, including Thew Elementary, McClintock High, Dobson High and Tempe Accelerated High Schools. We donate food to the needy, ring Salvation Army bells, read to children, supply water for the Special Olympics, donate school supplies, bring teachers dinner during long conference days, put Camels on Tempe Butte and bring gifts to students during the Holidays. We present scholarships to all of our local schools, including middle schools. We also have fundraisers throughout the year, with all net proceeds going directly to our community.
We do as much as clubs twice our size, but we are a dynamic club of caring friends
making a difference in Tempe, Arizona.
Kiwanis is Native American meaning "We have a good time," and that we also do! Each Tuesday we host a Noon to 1:00pm luncheon with a guest speaker. Every luncheon is open to the public and begins with the patriotic song (America), the Pledge of Allegiance to our Nation's Flag, the Southwest District Kiwanis Pledge (below) and a thought for the day. Our weekly meetings often include an informative guest speaker, raffle drawings and club business.
Each Luncheon meeting is closed with a joke to bring a smile to everyone's day.
We hope you have lunch on us and find out more about Kiwanis Nuevo.
