Welcome to Kiwanis

Welcome to your local Kiwanis service club, serving River Forest and Oak Park, where we are dedicated to supporting a culture of service in our community and developing youth as community leaders. READ MORE>>

Please join us on July 11th at 7 P.M. when our regular business meeting will be held at River Forest Chocolates, 7769 Lake  Street in River Forest, for mixing and mingling with our special guest speaker, Donna Fantetti Slepicka, who will be talking about owning and operating a small business. Great opportunity to learn more about the club and to bring youth in your life to hear about starting and managing a candy business.

We have fun on Kiwanis Peanut Day, and throughout the year, raising funding for teen scholarships, community grants, and service projects. Find out how you can donate, apply for grants or scholarships, or participate in fundraising.

 Service is at the heart of our club. Learn more about upcoming volunteer opportunities to engage with your friends and neighbors to help in the community.  If you have an idea for a service project in our community, contact us.
Service Projects

 We enjoy volunteering side-by-side for good causes, helping to seed the start of community events like Lincoln School's Science Expo, and learning more about the community from guest speakers during our meetings. Join us.
