Our club is involved in a variety of projects that involve fundraising, community service, and assisting children locally and worldwide.  Below are the projects in which we are currently involved:


Reading Device Drive

Boonslick Kiwanis is helping with the Columbia Reads project by participating in the “Donate a Device Campaign” portion of the project.  

The Columbia Reads project’s goal is to provide basic pre-school reading readiness materials to children that do not otherwise have access to reading readiness experiences and or materials in their homes.  The initial target community is those children, currently living in the Columbia Housing Authority units that are in desperate need of support prior to their formal educational experience that will begin at age five.

The “Donate a Device Campaign” involves creating a general awareness of the project, collecting and forwarding used e-readers and older tablets that the community at large are willing to donate and actively soliciting the public for donations and grants to help obtain a critical number of reading devices for distribution.  


Ronald McDonald House

Boonslick Kiwanis is helping to collect items for the Ronald McDonald House. Items may be dropped off at the Boonslick Kiwanis weekly club meeting (7:00 am - 8:00 am at the Rockbridge HyVee).  For a list of items needed, please click here.
