Worldwide Project - ELIMINATE:
With The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. This deadly disease steals the lives of nearly 60,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year. The effects of the disease are excruciating - tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch.

To eliminate MNT from the Earth, more than 100 million mothers and their future babies must be immunized. This requires vaccines, syringes, safe storage, transportation, thousands of skilled staff and more. It will take US$110 million - and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every member of the Kiwanis family.

Young Children: Priority One:
This ongoing service program of Kiwanis International and the Northside Naples Kiwanis Club addresses the needs of children prenatal through age five.

Christmas in Immokalee:
This tremendous undertaking that involves months of planning and coordinating is the flagship project of our club. Each year on Christmas Day a multitude of volunteers arrive in Immokalee to provide a Christmas meal for over 3,500 people, distribute much needed blankets and bring in Santa Claus to distribute gifts and toys to hundreds of children.


Habitat for Humanity:
Our club not only participates in the usual supplying of volunteers to help build these homes, but made a major contribution to Habitat for Humanity which resulted in the purchase of a building site in the name of Northside Naples Kiwanis.

Thanks to the initiative by our club, a joint effort by the Kiwanis clubs in our division will result in a Kiwanis Park developed at the Habitat for Humanity site. (www.habitatforhumanity.com)

Collier Harvest:
Kiwanis members and Key Club volunteers will be sorting and boxing canned goods from the Annual Letter Carriers Food Drive. The letter carriers pick up non-perishable food that you put out at your mailbox during that week and take it to a central receiving area. It is then sorted and boxed by volunteers and distributed by Collier harvest. Last year we collected and distributed over 200,000 pounds of food just from the Letter Carrier Food Drive.

Collier Harvest has delivered millions of pounds of food to over 60 local social service agencies that serve the needy of Collier County, Florida. Their volunteers regularly pick up day old bread, etc, from our supermarkets and distribute it to local social service agencies.

Please plan to volunteer to be a part of this wonderful project and help the less fortunate of Collier County.

Kids Against Hunger:
We work with this organization and other service clubs and individuals to pack meals for over 1,000,000 people annually.
