When the K-KIDS at Wilder Elementary started collecting canned food for Westerville Caring and Sharing and the Westerville Area Resource Ministry, they didn’t realize their efforts would not only provide a lesson in giving, but in math as well!  A whopping 742 canned goods were brought in for the local charities.  And if that’s not enough, they crafted 75 ornaments for a nearby nursing home.  Coordinator Lynn Holland said, “These kids are amazing!” 

Kiwanis provides Wilder with guidance and opportunities to complete local and worldwide service projects.  The K-Kids are guided by Kiwanis Vice President James Minter.
