What We Do
Kiwanis Krayons For Kids
So do you have used crayons that will be thrown out? What a waste!! Wouldn’t you rather have your unwanted crayons go to needy children, rather than landfills??
The Kiwanis Club of University City takes these broken or old crayons and re-purposes them to make new crayons! There are children throughout the Philadelphia region that would love nothing more than to express their creativity through drawing and coloring.
Unfortunately, these children cannot afford them. Kiwanis takes your old, broken crayons, melts them down, and then creates new crayons to give to these children. Wouldn’t you get pleasure knowing that due to your generosity these children from our area can have crayons that otherwise would just be tossed away!
