Club History

 

Welcome to the Kiwanis Club of Fairfield

The Kiwanis Club of Fairfield was chartered in 1961 and has been committed to the youth of Fairfield ever since. Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time.

Our service projects most often focus on the needs of children including pediatric trauma, safety, child care, early development, infant health, nutrition, and parenting skills. Service projects also address other needs within our community, such as working to stop substance abuse, helping the elderly, promoting literacy, supporting youth sports and recreation.

Kiwanis also plays a special role in developing future generations of leaders. K-Kids clubs at the elementary school level, Builders Clubs in middle school and junior highs, Key Clubs in high schools, and Circle K clubs at the collegiate level are all Kiwanis organizations that teach community service and leadership skills to young people.

Fairfield Kiwanis is very lucky to have several members of the Club that have been active members of Kiwanis for more than 30, 40 and even 50 years!  

Membership is open to local civic minded professionals, business people, and residents that want to make a positive impact on the children of our community. For more information, please contact president Paul Giacalone at 646-872-0112.
