Kiwanis International

Our hearts and support go out to these member's families ♥️

Kiwanis is heartbroken that two Key Club members are among the victims of the shooting in Parkland, Florida. We have reached out to Kiwanis and Key Club leaders in Florida to pledge our support and resources in this time of mourning.

Food Bank today with Kiwanis!

Photo album coming soon!

If you would like any of the presentations from this weekend or have any questions, message us! We would love to hear from you!

Books for Keeps – Volunteer handbook & waiver

Next Volunteer Opportunity:

Books for Keeps - We will be sorting and organizing the book donations that come into the facility.
Wednesday February 22nd 4:30-6:30 pm
@ 420 Athena Drive, Athens, GA 30601 (Detailed directions below)

All new volunteers of BFK will need to fill out an online waiver before participating. It can be found here: http://booksforkeeps.org/volunteer-handbook-waiver/.

Also, please fill out this Google Form so that Circle K and the manager of BFK's volunteering services can keep track of who's volunteering at Books for Keeps: https://goo.gl/forms/cZjbYdjUsV8gt4yI2

Directions to warehouse:
Books for Keeps sublets warehouse space in the back of CAM Trading’s warehouse located at 420 Athena Drive, Athens, GA 30601.
There is no signage for the warehouse from the road, but there is a small blue awning at the front of the warehouse.
It is located directly across the street from the Certainteed building, not the Certainteed gate/entrance.
Once you turn into the driveway beside the warehouse with the blue awning, travel forward looking for the very last door and loading dock on your left. Our door is to the right of the dock with our Books for Keeps sign hanging over it.
Map: https://www.screencast.com/t/5uKzifJnj
If you get lost, call Louis Crow on his mobile at 706-248-6002.

Warehouse volunteering MUSTS:
-Please do not park in the spots closest to the warehouse.
-Park away from the warehouse near the big green trash dumpster.
-Please don't block access to any of the loading docks.
-Wear weather-appropriate clothing that you don't mind get dirty. The warehouse is not climate controlled.
-Please bring your own water bottle/drink.
-You must wear closed-toed shoes to volunteer in the warehouse. This is very important for protecting feet from any dropped books or dropped boxes!

Volunteering with Books for Keeps is one of the most rewarding service experiences around – whether you’re sorting books in our warehouse, or helping give books away to children in area schools.
