A Lighthouse on Literacy

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child, and one community at a time.

The Kiwanis Club of Sun City Georgetown was chartered June 24, 1997, and has over 100 members, making it the largest club in the Texas/Oklahoma district.  The club is a thriving organization of service and community-minded individuals who support children and young adults in Williamson County and around the world.

Annually, The Kiwanis Club of Sun City volunteers 3500 hours throughout the greater Austin area. Their biggest event is the Sun City Holiday Home Tour which has been running for 19 years and has grossed close to $30,000 to help their community. They also put on a garage sale and do pancake breakfasts twice a year to help advocate for their cause.

One of the main things that the Kiwanis Club of Sun City focuses on is literacy. To date, they have contributed over $600,000 for children in Williamson County and have given over 40,000 books to early elementary readers. They sponsor K-Kids (elementary), Builders Club (Middle School), and Key Club (High School) for Georgetown ISD. Their giving doesn’t end there, in a new program they have begun, they have given out 7 college scholarships to local high school students.

RecognizeGood’s executive director Joel Coffman presented this incredible group with a plaque, a $500 donation, and complimentary seats to the 2020 Ethics in Business Awards luncheon.

The RecognizeGood Lighthouse Award is intended to illuminate the selfless community efforts and philanthropy of area service clubs to tell their stories and inspire others to make our community a better place. The program began in 2015 and has recognized more than 20 area service groups since its launch.
