“Working alongside Aktion Club allows Kiwanians to engage individuals who might otherwise be excluded from such endeavors, yet possess boundless potential to contribute to their communities,” Cavanagh says. “The Kiwanis members have embraced and supported our club, forging deep connections, understanding, and camaraderie with each and every member.”
