Kiwanis Club of LaBelle: Giving Back to the Community!
The Kiwanis Club of LaBelle recently made donations to the Barron Library to sponsor their summer reading program and to the American Legion. This is just two examples of the many ways that Kiwanis shows their support in our community. The Kiwanis Club of LaBelle meets every Tuesdays at Beef O’ Brady’s on Hwy 80 at 5:30 p.m., except for the 3rd Tuesday they meet at the Kiwanis Thrift Store. The club’s main fundraiser is Kiwanis Thrift Store located at 155 South Bridge Street. The store sells quality used merchandise at very low prices thanks to the generous donations from the community. All profits are given back to our local community in many ways such as High School Scholarships, Adult Scholarships, Children’s Programs and so much more! Please attend a meeting to find out what Kiwanis is all about.

Recently, the Kiwanis Club in LaBelle was awarded a grant from the Florida Kiwanis Foundation. This was the first time a grant was issued to a Kiwanis Club in District 19. The Florida Kiwanis Foundation Trustee, Hannah Pelle was pleased to come to LaBelle to deliver the award in person. Ms. Pelle is also a member of the Metro-McGregor Kiwanis Club in Ft. Myers. The grant will be used to purchase a large storage shed to be placed at the Kiwanis Thrift Store in LaBelle. Thanks to Kathy Woolston, the Thrift Store Manager for her hard work on the grant!
