Citrus Heights Kiwanis
Welcome to the Kiwanis Club of Citrus Heights. We were chartered on July 25th, 1972, 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 1972, we were one of 7700 clubs in 80 countries. Our motto is “Serving the Children of the World.”
For over fifty 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), Sayonara Center, and other local community groups. 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 meetings: 3rd Wednesday of every month at 6pm. Location is at the Round Table Pizza (Sunrise & Antelope). We recommend arriving approximately 30-minutes early to order food and claim your seat!
