Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time.
The Kiwanis Club of North Gwinnett has its roots beginning on May 3, 1939 where it was chartered as the Kiwanis Club of Buford. Begun in the basement of the Methodist Church, the club grew in membership and moved to several larger locations. Then, just like today, the club participated in numerous community service projects and was one of the early supporters in raising monies for the Buford Dam construction project. Now, re-chartered as the Kiwanis Club of North Gwinnett, the club is actively involved in supporting the local community.
The Kiwanis Club of North Gwinnett proudly sponsors four area high school Key Clubs: Mill Creek, North Gwinnett, Buford, and Lanier. They also sponsor two K Kids Clubs (Kindergarten thru 5th grade) at Ivy Creek Elementary and Burnette Elementary schools. These clubs receive mentorship from our Kiwanis Club, and along with the leadership of their school faculty advisor, participate in a number of service projects that benefit the community. Throughout the year, Kiwanis members raise monies through various projects such as the annual Father Daughter Valentine Dance in the Winter, the Vidalia Onion sale in the Spring, and a Golf Tournament in the Fall. Monies raised from these projects are returned locally in the support of the Boy Scouts, Girls State, Gwinnett Children’s Shelter, North Gwinnett Co-Op, and scholarships for our local high school seniors. Throughout the many years, the Kiwanis Club of North Gwinnett has awarded over $150,000 to high school seniors for academic scholarships. In keeping with the Kiwanis Motto of “Serving the children of the world”, they support other charitable groups within the community and numerous charitable groups through the State and National Kiwanis Organization.
Our membership consists of business men and women who value the giving of their time and talents in the service of others. We meet every Tuesday in far ballroom located on the top floor of the Buford Community Center from 12:00 – 1:00 located at 2200 Buford Highway, Buford, Georgia. Each week, we have an interesting program, a delicious catered lunch, and enjoy each others fellowship.
