Kiwanis Club of Carefree is moving into its new year with newly elected officers, new plans and goal to set a new record in support for the community.

“We are committed to creating awareness and recognition of the Kiwanis projects directed toward ‘supporting the kids’ in this local area,” shared Bob Moore, Communications Committee. “We are posting banners in Carefree and Cave Creek calling attention to the Kiwanis activities as we do lots more than just having the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast twice a year!”

Each year, for the last several years, Kiwanis has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the local community with scholarships, Chromebook computers, and financial support for local smaller, but important charities and projects.

“Please, every time you see these blue Kiwanis banners, think of the kids the Kiwanis are helping right here in our own backyard! These kids need all the help we can give them,” Moore added.

The Kiwanis Club of Carefree is one of the largest Kiwanis clubs in the world, with roughly 150 members. Its focus is on helping children recognize and develop their potential. The club supports post-secondary scholarships, summer art programs, special needs support, youth service organizations and more. For additional information, visit
