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 two 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, or when Christmas falls on Monday]

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.
