The Kiwanis Club of Two Rivers is one part of Kiwanis International, a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one community and one child at a time. The name "Kiwanis" means "we trade" or "we share our talents." It was coined from the 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! Members and clubs have contributed more than $80 million toward the past effort of global elimination of iodine deficiency disorders (IDD), the leading preventable cause of mental retardation.
