Foothills Kiwanis Club
of Boulder Valley
We meet every Monday* at 7 am at the Brewing Market, 2770 Dagny Way, Lafayette, CO.
At Foothills Kiwanis, we strive to serve the children of the world. We do so through a number of community service activities, including providing trained dogs to protect children who have Type 1 diabetes and severe allergies and other medical conditions through our club's Alert Service Dog Program, volunteering with The Salvation Army, sponsoring three Key Clubs in local high schools, a Builders Club in a local middle school, and a Circle K Club at CU, hosting Stars of Tomorrow youth talent competition, providing annual Foothills Kiwanis Tuition Scholarships, and much more.
[* We don't meet on Memorial Day]

Keeping Kids Safe
Alert Dogs for Kids
The Foothills Kiwanis "Alert-Dog Training Academy for Kids" program provides alert-dogs to children who have severe allergy reactions or diabetes that protects them by barking before eating something that can trigger a reaction or when their blood-sugar level is low. Click here to get more details about the alert-dog program and participating families, and how you can apply to receive an alert-dog for your child.
Helping The Community
The Salvation Army
Red Kettle Program
Foothills Kiwanis has teamed up once again with Salvation Army for bell ringing. All donations will be used by The Salvation Army to help families in Broomfield and Boulder Counties. Last year Foothills Kiwanis helped raise $23,315 and provided over 200 hours of volunteer hours to The Salvation Army.
