Westchester Kiwanis Special Project
Westchester Kiwanis helped a Bakersfield teen get a diabetic alert service dog that could save his life.
Examples of How We Support Our Community
Dream Center Partnership
We provide essentials such as hot meals, work clothes, and bus passes to help former foster youth obtain jobs and the income needed to successfully transition to adulthood.
Christmas Shopping Spree
We help give disadvantaged children a Merry Christmas at our annual shopping spree where volunteer "Shopperones" help kids shop, take a picture with Santa, and enjoy a warm breakfast.
Turner Park Upkeep
We ensure that children rescued from abuse, and temporarily housed at the Jamison Center, have a safe and fun place to play and just be kids.
Houchin Blood Bank
We’ve been passionate about saving lives through blood donations at Houchin Community Blood Bank for more than 25 years.
Examples of Our Impact
"Thanks to the help of the KCNC Dream Center and Westchester Kiwanis, I went from being homeless to someone who has housing, a job, & the income I need to my pay my bills each month. They provided the help I needed to get on my feet and be successful."
"As the Nutrition Coordinator at Boys and Girls Clubs of Kern County, I see firsthand the great need to help children in our community. Being a Kiwanian means that I get to be part of making lives better for local children through volunteering at projects like our annual Christmas Shopping Spree!"
We have two primary fundraising events annually that you can support as an attendee, volunteer, or financial contributor.
