The Kiwanis Club of Orange recently presented a $500 donation to West Orange – Stark Elementary School. Donated funds purchased books for 71 students in grades kindergarten through five at the WOS Elementary Book Fair.
“It is truly an honor to be able to have the means to support a program like this that can provide a little spark to inspire or motivate children. Every fundraising event we sponsor goes to projects like this, making this community better one child at a time,” Kiwanis President Shane Johns said.
As a local, non-profit, 501(c)4 organization, the Kiwanis Club of Orange hosts the Annual Orange Christmas Parade and an annual Glow Golf Tournament. Proceeds from the events provide college scholarships to local high school seniors, as well as other youth related projects.
The organization welcomes new members. For more information about the Kiwanis Club of Orange, visit @orangetxkiwanis on Facebook.
