The Tempe Sunrise Kiwanis Club has been serving needs of the children of the Tempe School District since 1967. We are a federally tax exempt 501(c)3 charitable foundation. Our Federal Tax Number is 86-0643575.
The Tempe Kiwanis Sunrise Club supports Tempe children in a number of ways:
- CARECARDS – We have partnered with CARECARDS to provide cards to isolated seniors during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Click here for more details.
- Our “Connecting with Kids” program provides school supplies, clothing, shoes, hygiene products and medical needs to enable children who lack these necessities to attend school.
- Annual Pancake Breakfast – Our annual pancake breakfast and music show each December allows Tempe schools to sell tickets to the breakfast raising money for their own programs.
- Beans & Rice Program – In December, donated beans and rice are distributed to participating Tempe Elementary School families in need for the holidays.
- Support of Group Foster Home – Each month we visit a home for displaced teenage boys and provide a lunch and gift for their birthday where they would otherwise go unrecognized.
- Scholarship for Middle & High School Graduates – A scholarship is offered each year to students who have exemplified exceptional service to their community.
- Support of Key Club & K-Club programs – We sponsor the Corona del Sol Key Club, sharing in service opportunities and providing financial support for regional conferences.
- Support of our Troops – We regularly gather donations of snacks, sanitary supplies and letters we send to our troops overseas.
