Citrus Heights Kiwanis
Welcome to the Kiwanis Club of Citrus Heights. We were chartered on July 25th, 1982, and we are an active community service club that supports international, district, divisional, and local projects. As members of Kiwanis, we are part of a much larger organization: In 1982, we were one of 7700 clubs in 80 countries. Our motto is “Serving the Children of the World.”
For over thirty years we have conducted a community Easter Egg Hunt and have had two major fundraisers each year to support all of our charitable giving. We also help the food banks in the area and work with the Salvation Army by ringing bells each year.
This club is a strong supporter of the Citrus Heights Police Department’s Police Activities League (PAL’s). We helped build and continue to support Kiwanis Family House, which provides temporary housing to families of patients at UC Davis Medical Center and Shiners’ Hospital of Northern California in Sacramento.
Current meeting places: Zoom, until further notice

A Note on our Current Status
COVID-19 has provided a unique challenge for us all, but during this time Citrus Heights Kiwanis has remained an active player in the community. We still provided Key Club scholarships this year, and most recently we partnered with the Citrus Heights Police Department to donate over $1000 to the Citrus Heights Food Bank; our members personally assisted with purchasing food.
Until further notice, we have been having our weekly meetings on Zoom.
