Kansas Kiwanis Foundation to Hold Silent Auction

The Silent Auction at the Kansas District Convention held by the Kansas Kiwanis Foundation will be divided equally between the Rock Springs project and the 50th Anniversary Scholarship Fund. Bring an item provided by your club or yourself. 

Theme baskets, crafted items or homemade goodies would be great; or your own unique idea. Bring or send your club's donated items to the Conference.

The Young Children Prioty One (YCPO) project for the convention is the USD 305 - Cottonwood Elementary School Food Bank.

Items they would like to stock are nonperishable food items:

canned veggies and fruit, noodles, rice, spaghetti sauce, mac and cheese, etc.

Baby care items:
diapers, baby food, hygiene items

Hygiene items for adults and kids:
shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, lotion, etc..

This would help not only the USD 305 students but their younger siblings and families that are in need.

This school has a high level of free and reduced lunch families and families that are on the border line of those programs that are going without because they don’t qualify. 

Cash and Check donations are acceptable - Please make checks out to USD 305 - Cottonwood Elementary School
