Foothills Kiwanis Club
We meet every Monday at 7 am at the Sweet Spot Cafe at the Coal Creek Golf Course, 585 W. Dillon Rd., Louisville, CO. During the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown, we are meeting virtually every week with speakers via Zoom. If you would like to join the meeting, please leave a message and the Zoom invitation will be sent to you.
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 severe allergies and other medical conditions through our club's Alert Dog Program, volunteering with Salvation Army bell ringing, hosting Stars of Tomorrow youth talent competition, providing annual Foothills Kiwanis Tuition Scholarships, and much more.

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
Salvation Army Bell Ringing
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 Boulder County. Last year Foothills Kiwanis helped raise $16,803 and provided over 200 hours of volunteer hours to Salvation Army.
