Jerry's Dream Camp Kiwanis 2019
In 2019 58 children ages 8-12 years old from Pleasant Grove area schools attended camp from Sunday through Thursday at no cost to their families, thanks in part to a $5,000 grant from Kiwanis Children's Fund and the Kiwanis Club of Pleasant Grove.
10 children ages 13-15 from the Pleasant Grove area also attended Mission Camp at Hidden Acres, thanks to fund raised by the Kiwanis Club of Pleasant Grove. Mission Camp runs Monday morning through Friday afternoon.
Year after year, the children come back to camp. When children age out, they attend Leadership Camp.
On the fourth Thursday of every month, members of the Kiwanis Club of Pleasant Grove meet at the Pleasant Grove Food Pantry, 1324 Pleasant Drive, 75217, to help sort through canned goods and stock the shelves.
The Pleasant Grove Food Pantry is always look for volunteers. Please contact Martha Doleshal, 972-313-5564, for rewarding opportunities!

The Kiwanis Club of Pleasant Grove reached Model Club status thanks to generous donations to The Eliminate Project. Most members wrote "birthday" checks in support of the project and our club received a great "jump start" from the Hixson's, Jerry and Annellon Fitzgerald. Thanks to efforts of our club, Kiwanis International has reached their fundraising goal, raising US$110 million in cash and pledges since 2010.
Through The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus—a deadly disease that steals the lives of nearly 49,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year. Read more about eliminating maternal/neonatal tetanus.
