Kiwanis Club of Tampa
One of our most meaningful and fun projects is the annual Kiwanis Children’s Christmas party. Every year our club contacts local elementary schools to identify students who may need a little extra support during the holiday season and they are invited to attend our annual Children’s Christmas Party.
Schools are asked to select four deserving students to come to the party, and provide information about the children so our members can act as “Santa Claus”. Our members volunteer to sponsor a child and fulfill their gift wish list. Additionally, the Tampa Kiwanis Foundation provides a new outfit, some school supplies, and a goody bag for each child.
the party the children enjoy lunch with their sponsor, sing Christmas carols,
and Santa Claus makes a special appearance! Our members serve as Santa’s
helpers, distributing the gifts to the children.
