LAX Kiwanis

Pg. 55 of the 2019 LAX Coastal Magazine & Business Guide

The LAX Kiwanis club just celebrated their 65th anniversary! They are proud of their service and financial assistance to those most vulnerable in the communities surrounding LAX: local children and their families affected by poverty, unemployment, racial bias and lack of educational opportunities. Just a few of their efforts include:

  • Awarding 700+ scholarships to LAX-area high school students—99% of them with high-ranking GPAs, a family income at or below the poverty level and active in volunteerism
  • Partnering with local schools to raise money for teacher mini-grants
  • Donating new clothes, shoes and backpacks each August to help less fortunate students start school with a smile
  • Adopting hundreds of local families every holiday season
  • Supporting the LAX Coastal Education Foundation with a gift of $19,000 to support local schools as a thank you for their partnership in the 2018 Golf Tournament
  • Raising funds to send local kids to YMCA Summer Camp
    Volunteering at local Ronald McDonald Hospitals
  • Partnering with local schools to raise funds for teacher mini-grants
