Kiwanis Kicks


The Monmouth Kiwanis Club is starting up a new program to provide socks and shoes to children in the Monmouth-Roseville school district. Member Julie Shaw reports on the program:

“This is our first year. It’s a program called Kiwanis Kicks. This is supported by Kiwanis 210 foundation, Footwear Foundation. We are wanting to raise money for kids’ grades one through three here in the Monmouth-Roseville school district. Those kids whose families may have difficulty providing proper footwear for their children. So we would like to provide a pair of shoes and a pair of socks for those children. To do that, we are asking businesses or anyone interested, to donate $25 per child, or to sponsor a child for $25. Our goal is to reach about $3,000 for the first year,” Shaw shares.

Their future goal is to eventually provide socks and shoes to children in grades 1st through 8th grade and expand into other school districts in the area.

To make a donation, feel free to contact any Kiwanis member or mail to P.O. Box 581 Monmouth, IL.
