Jul Yule a Success for Senior Holiday Baskets

The air was filled with snow flakes, melody, and a hint of peppermint as Hurricane Dave, the Hims, and other musical guests successfully raised $620 dollars for the Kiwanis/Salvation Army senior food baskets.


Many flocked to the concert due to KTUU and KWHL media coverage.


The music pleased the crowd in no small part due to the multitude of musicians, their professional sound setup, and the addition of an “auto harp”. This wasn’t a free concert like those commonly held on sidewalks with open guitar cases. This was a genuine concert.


Even Santa and Mrs. Claus made an appearance.


Unfortunately, it seems Mikey likes direct service over fundraising. That being said, if you would like to donate to this project please let us know through our contact form. Adrian Avey, our club treasurer would be happy to work with you.

Successful Salvation Army Project

On Tuesday December 6, 2011 the University Kiwanis Club sponsored an evening of giving with the Salvation Army’s “Meals on Wheels” program.  Some 350  bags of gifts and food items were assembled by Kiwanis Club members along with members of our sponsored KEY Clubs and UAA CKI members.  In about 1 and 1/2 hours the group worked the assembly line and filled all the bags to then be delivered by the Salvation Army to local people served by the Meals on Wheels program. Have a Merry Christmas!
This year we receive donations from:

  • Dimond Boulevard Walgreens 
  • Huffman Road Walgreens
  • DiTomasos Fruit
