The Kiwanis Club of Norwalk is made up of men and women of various ages and occupations, who share a desire and commitment to serve their community and enrich the lives of its residents, especially children. We are one of the most active and recognized civic organizations in the Huron County Area. The Kiwanis Club of Norwalk offers people the opportunity to get actively involved with their community in a meaningful, hands-on way and to network with other area professionals – all while having fun!
We invite you to discover how the Kiwanis Club of Norwalk can help you find purpose through fellowship, fun, and networking opportunities. You are invited to "try us on for size" by attending one of our weekly meetings, as our guest.
We meet at the Norwalk First United Methodist Church and follow the guidelines for social distancing. Boxed lunches will be provided for those who would like them. If you would like a boxed lunch you must RSVP Sandy by Tuesday of each week so that one can be prepared for you. You may bring your own lunch if you prefer.
Meetings are held at 11:30am every Thursday at the Norwalk First United Methodist Church located at 60 W Main St, Norwalk Ohio, unless otherwise noted on our calendar. No meeting on any fifth Thursday of a month.
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time.
Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. This deadly disease steals the lives of nearly 34,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year. THe effects from the disease are excruciating. Tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch. To eliminate MNT from the Earth, more than 100 million mothers and their future babies must be immuninized. It will take $110 million - and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every member of the Kiwanis family.
As of May, 2018, The Eliminate Project has raised $110 million uncluding cash, pledges, and the Canadian government match * (US $436.63 per member average). In all, 45 countries have had MNT eliminated and 14 countries remain. We're so close, it's time to turn our commitment into impact. Eleven countries have scheduled immunization campaigns. So we need to continue to fulfill outstanding pladges quickly to release the funds UNICEF needs to reach those nations.
