The Kiwanis Club donated fleece tie blankets to the Coopersville Branch of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office at their meeting on November 17, 2017 at the 327 Pizza and Pub in Coopersville. Police Officers will give these blankets to children in need in the Coopersville area. We know the blankets were needed when we made our first donation earlier this year and are happy to continue with another 15 blankets.
The Kiwanis club donated $300 to the North East Ottawa Forum (Neo Forum) https://coopersvillebroncos.org/parents-community/neo-forum/. “Kiwanis is all about helping children and Neo Forum fits in perfectly with our values.
Ron Veldman spoke to the club about the school district and some of the ways that the Kiwanis club can participate in the various activities with the students. Catherine Meintsma is already working with students to start a Key Club.
