We meet every Monday at 7 am at The Grill at Coal Creek Golf Course, 585 W. Dillon Rd., Louisville, CO 80027.
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 Key Clubs in three local high schools and a Circle K Club at CU, hosting Stars of Tomorrow youth talent competition, providing annual Foothills Kiwanis Tuition Scholarships, and much more.

Coolest Dog on the Front Range Contest
We are currently planning for the 2021 contest. Last year, 2020, the six-week contest closed on September 13. Participants and sponsors helped us raise nearly $20,000. We thank all the dog owners who entered their dog, and to participating sponsors.
All funds raised will support Kiwanis service projects, such as: Alert Service Dog for Kids and other youth-oriented missions in our community and the world.
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 $16,803 and provided over 200 hours of volunteer hours to The Salvation Army.
