Kiwanis International is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. Our members, Kiwanians, are service-minded men and women who are united in their commitment and compassion for others.
At the Kiwanis Club of South Orange Maplewood, we want to ensure that all children have the opportunity to lead healthy, successful lives. We believe that by helping one child, you help the world.
Six Objects of Kiwanis
To give primacy to the human and spiritual, rather than the material values of life.
To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
To promote the adoption of the application of higher social, business, and professional standards.
To develop by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship.
To provide, through Kiwanis Clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build better communities.
To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism, which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and goodwill.
