Stop by the Holiday Inn Express on a Tuesday at lunchtime and you’ll find a group of energetic, caring people sharing food and fellowship. These are members of the Hillsborough Kiwanis Club, developing and launching plans to help children locally and around the world. Chartered in 1988, the Hillsborough Kiwanis are part of a global organization of volunteers
dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time.
Several years ago, the group reached out to Volunteers for Youth. With congruent missions of helping youth, the Hillsborough Kiwanis were happy to become sponsors of Volunteers for Youth’s annual fall golf tournament, a partnership that has continued ever since. Tim Hucks, a member of the Board of Directors at Volunteers for Youth and of the Hillsborough Kiwanis, explains, “I asked the Kiwanis of Hillsborough to contribute to VFY because we love to help kids in need. We especially love to promote good citizenship and mentoring fits the bill. The Hillsborough Kiwanis members are fascinated by the workings of teen court. Helping teens practice how court works and helping develop a sense of responsibility is invaluable.”
