“The Whitewater Breakfast Kiwanis Club distributes funds that help the children in our community. All of the proceeds from this year’s lily sale will be used for the transportation needs for the Whitewater Schools’ ELL Summer Reading Program. Thank you to everyone who supports Kiwanis and our community,” said Rick Norman, Chairperson of the Kiwanis Whitewater Breakfast Club Easter Lilies sales.
Kiwanis thanks Jim Boyd and the Whitewater Greenhouse for assisting with the Easter Lilies.
The Kiwanis Whitewater Breakfast Club is made up of dedicated volunteers who help children in the Whitewater community and the world, all with 100 percent of funds raised going directly to projects and zero to administrative costs. Each year, the club distributes approximately $20,000, with over half going to the Whitewater Unified School District, including Ferradermis, ELL Summer School Transportation, shoes for students, Badger Boys State and Badger Girls State, and scholarships. Kiwanis helped to build and maintain the Flowing Well Shelter, the shelter and accessible playground at Starin Park and Treyton’s Field of Dreams, the WHS football field lights and press box, as well as adopting a highway to clean up. In addition, the group donates to the Whitewater Youth Soccer Club, the Friends of the Whitewater Aquatic Center Family Partnership Fund, the Whitewater Food Pantry, Bethel House and more.
Funds are raised through annual Pancake Breakfasts that have been served continuously since the 1950s, the Discover Whitewater Series Half-Marathon Pancake Breakfast since it began, and yearly poinsettia and lily plant sales.
