Why Give Back All Year?

During the holidays, we remember those without the warmth of a home, shiny gifts around a tree, and delicious family meals. Sure, it is easy to remember to give our hearts to the needy during holidays. However, children in our community are in need year-round.

At Valparaiso Sunrise Kiwanis, we work all year to support children and their families in our community. We collaborate with businesses, non-profits, churches, and individuals who want to invest in their community and make a difference. We are passionate about giving back and this fuels us to continue our mission throughout all seasons.  

“Valparaisians” love their city; why wouldn’t they? We have a splendid city with a strong sense of community. Countless Valpo-dwellers enjoy the benefits of giving back. There is a beautiful sensation of connectedness when you support organizations like the Sunrise Kiwanis. It’s not only good for the community and your spirit, it’s a great way to network!

You communicate the values of yourself and your business just by being a part of a larger charitable organization. Networking, making friends, and finding ways to give back are made simple at our weekly meetings. We even have guest speakers that can help you become even more connected with the needs of our children and other members of the community. Plus, don’t forget you can use all your contributions on your income taxes.
