Kiwanis Club of San Francisco
Kiwanis Club of South San Francisco – Serving Our Community Since 1953
The Kiwanis Club of South San Francisco is a local volunteer service club based on fun, friendship and charity. Chartered 66 years ago; in 1953, the Kiwanis Club is a snapshot of the community, with members from all walks of life and at every step of the career ladder. We are unified and dedicated in our belief that children, their families and communities benefit from the efforts of a proficient group of caring and involved volunteers.
Volunteers from Kiwanis, El Camino High School Key Club and South San Francisco High School Key Club package and deliver food boxes and gifts to families in need for the annual Louis P. Guaraldi Holiday Food Basket Program.
The Kiwanis Club of SSF proudly sponsors three youth service leadership clubs: El Camino High School Key Club, South San Francisco High School Key Club, and San Francisco State University Circle K. Recent club service activities have included supporting and volunteering for Santa Comes to Town in partnership with the SSF Chamber and City of SSF, the Louis P. Guaraldi Holiday Food Basket Program in partnership with the YMI, Kiwanis Special Games, annual Safeway Thanksgiving Food Drive and more. We love to give back to local organizations such as the Boys & Girls Club, Project Read, Key Leader, local schools, youth sports teams, and student scholarships. This year, in addition to co-hosting Santa Comes to Town, we created STEM Wonderland for Kids for families to enjoy hands-on STEM activities at the Grand Avenue Library before or after visiting Santa. We met families and shared more about Kiwanis and sold food while they waited in line for pictures with Santa. We hope to make it an annual event.
Members of the El Camino High School, South San Francisco High School Key Clubs, San Francisco State University Circle K and Kiwanis Club of SSF volunteered to take free photos of children with Santa at SSF City Hall and provide hands-on activities at STEM Wonderland for Kids next door at the Grand Avenue Library.
We hosted a fun Halloween Costume Party Fundraiser in 2019 and are doing it again this year so line up a great costume and join us on Saturday, October 24, 2020 at the SSF Women’s Center. We plan to hold a Bingo Fundraiser this year and will keep you posted about upcoming events as we’d love the support of our fellow Division 34 clubs.
We always try to schedule informative and interesting speakers at our weekly meetings…please join us soon for an interclub! The Kiwanis Club of SSF meets every Tuesday from 12:10 pm to 1:30 pm at the Basque Cultural Center (599 Railroad Ave. @ Magnolia) in South San Francisco.
