Meridian-Kent Kiwanis has sponsored physically disabled youth for over 30 years. Starting at Green River Community College offering sports opportunities for physically disabled youth from the Puget Sound area.
Our club has gone on to support the annual North Central of Seattle Kiwanis Camp Casey youth summer camp. Each August, this Kiwanis camp offers over 90 youth from the Northwes and young adult counselors an amazing week of fun. Kiwanian's from the Puget Sound area help raise funds and volunteer their time to give this one of a kind experience to these youth.
