Purpose for Kiwanis of Pinellas Park

Serving our community

Kiwanis is a service organization above all else. One of the tenets of Kiwanis is, "To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life."  Our club adopts projects each year to meet the needs of our local, national, and international community. Club members participate in committees to coordinate and contribute to service opportunities. 

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers, dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time.  Individual clubs are made up of service and community minded individuals who support children and young adults around the world.  Kiwanis was founded in 1915 in Detroit, MI with its headquarters now in Indianapolis, IN. Kiwanis has over 600,000 members in 96 countries around the world, who make their mark by responding to the needs of their communities and by pooling their resources, addressing worldwide and community issues.
