The Ellsworth Kiwanis Club has many community service activities that we perform. We hold fund raisers to raise money for our scholarship program. Our most recent fundraiser was our 4th annual Ellsworth Kiwanis Home and Garden Show. We raised almost $4,000! Thanks to all the vendors, the volunteers and those who attended the show. It takes all of us to make the show a fundraiser we can count on to raise funds to give away to youth programs in the area!
We also provide a chain gang at football games in Ellsworth; sponsor the Ellsworth youth Wrestling Tournament in January of each year; provide High School Athletic Concession Stand labor and serve the Farm Safety Day kids a lunch.
Kiwanis Splash Pad at Preisker park - installed in 2019 - We raised $180,000 to make it possible! Thanks to all the sponsors!
Our members assist with USDA Commodities food distribution along with the First United Methodist Church, Ellsworth.
Annual Home and Garden Show
It is a great event for the community and also has been a good fund raiser for us.
You can also find us at the Ft. Harker Days, the Cowtown Days in Ellsworth, and other community events selling hamburgers and roasted corn. Our famous "CORN!" cry can be heard throughout the area when we are having fun raising money for kids.
Community Thanksgiving and Christmas Baskets for the Needy
Through member donations, we purchase food for baskets to be given to needy families with children in our area.
USDA Commodities Distribution:
Many of our members volunteer to assist in the distribution of USDA Commodities approximately six times per year.
