 tax deductible via our partner the Community Foundation of Oak Park and River Forest.
Our charitable work continues with your help. We awarded $8,000 in scholarships to college-bound teens, sponsored Key Clubs, young athletes, and volunteered in projects. We supported meals and childcare for front line medical worker families during COVID. We  also delivered on our club’s 6th year of Go-Baby-Go, partnering with Shirley Ryan Ability Lab—retrofitting battery cars for toddlers to improve mobility and neural growth. Please help us to continue to meet new and emerging community needs.

Kiwanis Peanut Day, September 26, 2020
We can’t be on the streets this year, but we are still supporting the community, and your donation helps us do that. This year, you can donate online and direct your bag of peanuts or gummies using the "In Honor of..." box when you donate to a local "food program" or "student program", or for large donations you can send a box to a specific "[name of] local business". Just specify in the . We will deliver to their door.

 Successful Inaugural GoBabyGo Event Fundraiser at the Autobahn!

Thanks to all who joined us--Kiwanis Club of River-Forest-Oak Park and the Illinois Spina Bifida Association--at the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, Illinois on September 7, 2019 to raise funds for GoBabyGo programs in Illinois. Key note speaker Cole Galloway, founder of the GoBabyGo national movement, spoke movingly of "mobility as a right" and the impact of this cost-effective and volunteer-based program on medical suppliers of more sophisticated, and much more expensive, motoring devices. We netted over $7,000, exceeding our goal for this inaugural event, which we plan to continue and expand in future.

   
Kiwanis Annual Bowl-a-thon

In past Springs, the River Forest-Oak Park Kiwanis Club has worked collaboratively with fellow clubs to support a bowl-a-thon event to raise money for research and developmental supports for children with special needs. Our last event raised $10,000. Target charities include Kiwanis Neuroscience Research Foundation (credit "River Forest Oak Park" when you donate online), and YMCA Camp Independence where research is put into action.
