HOLMDEL, NJ: The Holmdel Kiwanis has been making a positive impact in the community since 1965. Novem er's food drive was a great example of that. Standing outside Best Market in the Holmdel Commons, the Holmdel Kiwanis collected over 2,000 pounds of food!  Recognizing that not everyone has the ability to provide food for their family, the collection was done for the St. Vincent DePaul Society at St. Catharine’s in Holmdel, and St. John’s Church in Hazlet. Pictured are Jim Colby, board member and Mac Maloney, member.

“We subscribe to the tenets of our Statement of Purpose which says ‘we are members of the Kiwanis family, a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time’. This is just one way that we can help families in our community have a better life.” commented a Holmdel Kiwanis representative collecting food. 

         The Holmdel Kiwanis is a group of like-minded citizens dedicated to their community, improving the lives of children and their families.  The group works with a variety of non-profits with the same philosophy of serving. Membership in the club is open to anyone in the community that is at least 18 years of age and has a passion for helping others through volunteering to serve.  The Holmdel Kiwanis has been serving the community since 1965 and welcomes people to visit a meeting to find ways they can participate.  The Holmdel Kiwanis meets weekly at 7 pm at a variety locations throughout the area.  To find future meetings visit www.holmdelkiwanis.org.  Please join them for dinner as their guest.
