Food Boxes Distributed to 125 Local Families
December 17, 2016 - Conway, AR
Conway Kiwanis Club distributed boxes of food to 125 local families this weekend, using funds donated by club members at the annual Christmas Auction earlier this month. The club purchased $10,961 worth of groceries from the local 10 Box food warehouse, and spent Saturday morning packing the groceries into boxes and distributing. Thanks to the help of the store the club was able to pack several meals into each box, including a Christmas ham, several meat items, and even cookies and hot chocolate for the kids.
For 90 years the Conway Kiwanis Club has provided local business and professional persons an opportunity to get together once a week for fellowship and information on matters of local, state, national, and international concern. Of even more importance, Kiwanis has encouraged voluntary participation in a wide variety of community service and leadership activities. For example, Sid Adams, our club president in 1947, also served as the president of Young Business Men’s Association, member of Conway Chamber of Commerce, member of Conway School Board, and as a member of the board of the Conway Corporation during the 1940s and 50s. Such activities have benefited not only the Conway and Faulkner County community, but also the individual Kiwanian.
