Kiwanis Patriotic Fundraiser
The Kiwanis Club of Kalamazoo will display a quality 3x5 foot American Flag on a 10 foot pole in front of your home or business on six patriotic holidays. The Club will provide all materials and maintain the flags. Volunteers will deliver and install the flag prior to each holiday and remove it following the holiday – all you need do is subscribe. We hope you, your neighbors and business owners will join us in showing our community patriotism.
The Holidays are:
A 12” x 1-1/4” pvc sleeve with cap will be permanently installed below ground level approximately 36” from the sidewalk. For businesses without a green space, a heavy-weight stand will be utilized.
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. The Flags Across Kalamazoo project will be a fundraising source to advance this motto in our community. You can participate in the advancement of this great cause and show your patriotism all at the same time by subscribing.
You can also place an order via PayPal. You don't have to have a PayPal account, there is an option to pay via credit card. If your installation address is different than your billing address, use the shipping address area. We will be in contact for flag placement information.
If you have questions, or if you would like help with signing up for the service please email us or call 370-8360.
The Kiwanis Club of Kalamazoo was represented well at the Walk for Better Hearing event on Sunday, May 18. The Club was a Platinum Sponsor and had several members attend the Walk. This annual event organized by Psi Iota XI benefits Constance Brown Hearing Centers, a nonprofit hearing healthcare provider committed to providing state-of-the-art technology to improve hearing for all.
Our club has long-supported Constance Brown Hearing Centers, helping to establish them in 1942, and contributing to their mission to this day.
Psi Iota Xi estimates that the Walk raised $4,700, but donations are still coming in. Psi Iota Xi is a sorority dedicated to helping others, especially those with speech and hearing disabilities. For years, they have coordinated the Walk for Constance Brown Hearing Centers.
