The close of 2021 brought the Marshall Fire, which raged through much of our area on December 30, wreaking unimaginable devastation.

Foothills Kiwanis has been and continues to be a resource in helping many organizations, including the Salvation Army and the Southern Baptists, in assisting fire victims
