Since 1949, the Kiwanis Club of Christiansburg has provided services to our local community. This includes development of Kiwanis Park and starting the recreation program for Christiansburg. Over the years, Kiwanis raised funds and provided labor support to many youth organizations including: Boy Scouts, Red Cross, school safety patrol, Girls and Boys State, cheerleaders, sandlot programs, and Christmas celebrations for local children in need, to name a few.
Membership is open to anyone who has an interest in building a better community, serving the youth and citizens of Christiansburg and who are willing to dedicate themselves to helping the Club achieve the goals of Kiwanis.
The Club has worked with the six schools in Christiansburg to establish a Kiwanis Clothe a Child Program which provides funding for children without ample means to purchase needed clothing. In addition, working with the same six schools, the Club has set up a Kiwanis School Supplies Program to support those children who do not have money to buy their required school supplies.
In 2009 Kiwanis became the managing organization for the Kiwanis Wilderness Trail Festival which takes place the third Saturday in September each year in downtown Christiansburg. All festival proceeds directly support the youth of Christiansburg. To find out more about the Festival, visit www.wildernesstrailfestival.com.
