Kay’s Kids – One-Child-At-A-Time Program

This program is named in memory of club member Boyce Kay who always looked to fill the needs he saw in our community. Funds are provided to school counselors, social workers and administrators ho identify individual student needs. These needs have included shoes for basketball, a new coat, clothing, prom tickets, school fees for arts and music, field trip fees, and many other expenses that help students participate fully and succeed in their school experience.

Club Gets Involved

The Club Board of Directors upon hearing this really distressing situation at our schools decided to step in and make a financial donation of $2,500 for the FY2019-2020 year. The funds to be used on an individual basis as Cathi and the school counselors consider the most serious student situations, first.

Once a student has been selected, Cathi steps in to provide the needed item or meal payment plan to the school in the student’s name. In early 2020, the project helped a number of students with needed items in both the Surf City and Dixon Schools. When the item is given to the student by the social worker they are made aware that the Kiwanis Club of Topsail Island Area donated the item or support.

Please contribute to Kiwanis with your donation so that we can continue this program for ‘One Child at a Time.’

We use PayPal. You can donate using PayPal or a Credit/Debit Card.

Kiwanis Service Projects

Service is at the heart of every Kiwanis club, no matter where in the world it’s located. Members stage approximately 150,000 service projects and raise nearly US $100 million every year for communities, families and projects. By working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone.

Our Kiwanis club focuses on changing the world by serving children, one child in our community at a time. To reach more people and have a greater service impact on their communities, many clubs sponsor a Kiwanis family club — K-Kids for primary school children; Builders Clubs for adolescents; Key Clubs for teens; Circle K clubs for university students and Aktion Clubs for adults living with disabilities.
