About Us  

Kiwanis Club and Foundation of Crofton

 Who we are

Chartered in May of 1976, the Kiwanis Club of Crofton is the largest Kiwanis Club in Anne Arundel County, with over 60 active members.  Members are a "Who's Who" of Crofton, with politicians, professionals, business owners, retired government executives and more.  How about you?

 What we do

Community service is the main objective of Kiwanis, and Crofton Kiwanis is deeply involved in Crofton affairs. Several times a year the club sponsors a Blood Drive in conjunction with the Anne Arundel Medical Center. The annual Kiwanis Halloween parade for children has been a tradition for over 30 years. Monthly Bingo and Birthday parties at Crofton Convalescent and Rehabilitation Center are a highlight for the residents. We have also provided significant support to severely wounded veterans with an ongoing special project.  Every April, the club participates in the Rebuilding Together home renovation project.  Monthly dinners and other assistance are provided at Sarah’s House, a local homeless shelter.  In 2007 and2008 we funded their children's summer activity program. During the holidays, Crofton  Kiwanians ring the bell for the Salvation Army, provide meals and gifts for several families, and provide holiday gifts through the Christmas Angel program.  Throughout the year, the club maintains the Crofton Parkway flags.  Beyond the local community, we support Johns Hopkins Hospital Children's Pediatric Trauma Center, the Kiwanis International Young Children Priority One projects, and a number of other charitable organizations.  Crofton Kiwanis has, in 2007 and 2008 been the primary financial source for Crofton Caring Council funding.

 Each year our club sponsors a golf tournament in May, the annual Crofton 10K race in June, and participates in the Crofton Craft Fairs, selling commemorative ornaments.  The club’s largest fundraiser is its annual Charity Auction, held in November. These events are not only fundraisers, but also serve as highly popular community activities.

 

Sponsored Youth support is given to a K-Kids Club at Crofton Woods Elementary School, a Builders Club at Crofton Middle School, and Key Clubs at Arundel and Archbishop Spalding High Schools. These clubs conduct their own service projects and work on joint projects with Kiwanis throughout the year.
