A Little Information About Our Club

The Kiwanis Club of Riverside is an organization made up of men and women who have made a commitment to give back to our community. Our members contribute thousands of dollars and donate thousands of man-hours each year to make a difference in many peoples lives.

The links in the navigation bars will take you to several pages that tell our story. You will be able to take a look at the long history of our club, some of our clubs accomplishments and projects since our club received its charter in 1921. You will also be able to see who our distinguished Past Presidents have been and some of the external offices of Kiwanis that have been held by our members. Check out our committee pages to see how we hav structured ourselves.

For 20 years, the Kiwanis Club of Riverside has sponsored the holiday program at Longfellow Elementary School. Each year, the Club buys and wraps gifts for 2 students (one boy and one girl) from each classroom who are selected based on improvement in grades or behavior. Other gifts are distributed by "Santa" played by past Club president Doug Shackelton at a holiday assembly. The club members also purchase packaged food and fresh chicken from Stater Bros Markets which they unload, box and distribute to 100 families after school ends.
