Over the years, Kiwanis Club of Allentown members have given generously to our Foundation, through donations, bequests, and memorials. This has enabled us to provide grants totaling nearly $1 million to a variety of community service projects, and college scholarships to deserving students from William Allen, Allentown Central Catholic, and Salisbury High Schools.
