Calendar of Events

Skip A Meal program is here once again! Every April, Kiwanians and their families, friends and coworkers take part in Skip-A-Meal by passing up a meal (or bringing a meal) instead of going out. They then give the cost equivalent of that meal to the Kiwanis International Foundation. These gifts help them extend their Kiwanis impact to children at home and around the world.

All proceeds raised by the Jenkintown Kiwanis Club this year go toward our Project Eliminate Fund.

Suggested donation is $20 per member. Donate using PayPal link below:
