Kiwanis Club of Adrian Community Projects and Fundraisers

Our club is involved in a variety of projects that involve fundraising, community service, and assisting children locally and worldwide.  Below are some of the projects in which we are currently involved:

Annual Community Impact Giving Grants Program

Annual Grant Giving process where the club and its foundation give away money to local non-profits.

Avenue of Flags Project

The Adrian Kiwanis Club has a patriotic fundraising project called the Avenue of Flags. All Adrian residents and businesses are invited to participate!

The Avenue of the Flags is a community service project where the Adrian Kiwanis Club will place the United States flag in front of your home or business on 7 significant days annually.  Those days are Memorial Day, Flag Day, Juneteenth, Independence Day, Labor Day, Patriot Day on 9-11, and Veteran’s Day.  The flags are delivered and set up for you on those days.
