The Kiwanis Club of Northwest Indianapolis is a 35-year-old service organization made up of 62 volunteers. It has been associated with The Salvation Army for most of those 35 years through staffing the kettles and ringing the bell each holiday season.
Its service area is roughly Pike Township and the members are very proud of their relationship with the Fay Biccard Glick Multi service Center at Crooked Creek, where the Kiwanis Club of Northwest Indianapolis does a clothe-a-child program each December. The club also volunteers at College Park Elementary School, where it has a reading and mentoring program with third graders. The Mike Carroll Citizenship Award is a $1,500.00 scholarship that the club awards to a deserving senior at Pike High School each year. The Kiwanis Club of Northwest Indianapolis also sponsors three Key Clubs at Pike High School, Zionsville High School and Seccina.
