Whether you want to give your children the experience of giving back to others or you’re looking for a way to get more involved in the community this holiday season, the Bradenton Kiwanis Club is here to help!
As the holiday season fast approaches, the club has organized several opportunities for both club members and the public to get involved in the community. Here are a few ways you can help.
- Salvation Army Bell Ringing – each year, members of the Bradenton Kiwanis Club help support the Salvation Army by ringing the bell outside the Westgate Plaza Publix on Manatee Avenue. Those who volunteer for this service always have a great time sharing the holiday spirit with one another and with customers patronizing the store. Opportunities to get involved will take place on Friday, December 10 and Saturday, December 11. Both days are broken into four 2-hour shifts.
- Wreaths Across America – Wreaths Across America seeks to pay honor to those veterans who are no longer with us. The opportunity to lay wreaths at Mansion Memorial Park in Ellenton will take place on Saturday, December 18th.
- Boys & Girls Club Christmas Tree Sales – Assisting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee with its Christmas tree sales has been a Bradenton Kiwanis Club tradition for many years. The lot is located on Manatee Avenue between Westgate Shopping Center and Jessie P. Miller Elementary School. Volunteer opportunities are available on Saturday, November 27th.
Community members who are interested in volunteering or who would like to learn more about the club are invited to contact Sharon Barhorst at firstname.lastname@example.org or Beth Deyo at Admin@DiscoverBradenton.com
