About Us
 
   
  We are Kiwanis. A global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one
  child and one community at a time. Founded in 1915 in Detroit and with headquarters now
  in Indianapolis, Kiwanis International is a thriving organization of service - and community-
  minded individuals who support children and young adults around the world.
   
  Mission. The mission of Kiwanis is to serve the children of the world. Our members help
  shelter the homeless, feed the hungry, mentor the disadvantaged and care for the sick.
  We develop young leaders, build playgrounds, raise funds for pediatric research and more.
  No problem is too big or too small. Working together, our members achieve what one person
  cannot accomplish alone. When you give a child a chance to learn, dream and succeed,
  great things happen!
   
  Our Club. Organized in 1918, the Kiwanis Club of Kansas City is the oldest Kiwanis club
  in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area and the second oldest Kiwanis club in the state of
  Missouri. Our club meets every Thursday at Noon at Pierpont's Restaurant, located at
  30 West Pershing Road inside Union Station in Kansas City, Missouri.
  We encourage guests and newcomers to attend.
