Airdrie Kiwanis Club, with the help of the Airdrie Boys and Girls Club, has made the donation of 40 Kiki Care Boxes for kids and families in Airdrie. 

Nancy Wigglesworth, the President of the Kiwanis Club of Airdrie Foothills, says the Kiwanis club is all about kids.  

“Kids need Kiwanis. Our mission is to help the children develop as best they can to their best ability.” 

Wigglesworth first explained how they were able to raise money to help create these signature Kiki Care boxes. 

“The Kiwanis Clubs of Calgary and Airdrie went together and actually created and wrote a cookbook for kids. Kids could learn some simple recipes and we could sell it to make money. We partnered with the Calgary Youth Police. We have sold over 2000 books so far.” 

The Airdrie Kiwanis Club then contacted their partners at the Boys and Girls Club of Airdrie and asked them if there were children in need that could benefit from these care boxes, which there were plenty. 

Wigglesworth says the Kiki Care boxes consist of many donations from different corporate groups.  

“We got toys, sports equipment, school supplies, hygiene kits, dental hygiene kits, we got some pasta from the food bank. It was amazing what people gave. We bought $50 gift certificates for food certificates, and put that in the boxes.”

Wigglesworth says she loves doing this type of thing and it's just one way of spreading the love she and the Kiwanis Club have. 

They are still selling their cookbook for kids and any money raised from the books will go back to the community.
