One Hundred Acts of Kiwanis Kindness in London, Ontario
The Kiwanis Club of Forest City-London is celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Kiwanis in a very special way. Under the leadership of Kay Hillier, Sharon Lessard and their committee, the club is performing "one hundred acts of kindness" each month this year, to benefit the London community.
One hundred boxes of diapers for teen-age moms, one hundred cans of soup to the local food bank, one hundred pairs of socks for the homeless: the scope is endless, and the members are enthusiastically enjoying the process.
A delegation from the Kiwanis Club of Forest City-London visited Youth Opportunities Unlimited (Y.O.U.) at the Cornerstone Building to present 700 diapers and 100 baby wipes for their Young Moms program. This gift is part of the club's year-long 100 Acts of Kindness emphasis, celebrating the 100th anniversary of Kiwanis International.
