The Back Mountain Kiwanis Club is part of a global volunteer organization dedicated to improving the world “one child and one community at a time”. We are making transformative changes in the Back Mountain community and are inspiring youth to follow in our footsteps. As such, our members dedicate their time to supporting children, families, and individuals in the communities of the Back Mountain, through hands-on service projects and fundraising efforts. We participate in service projects for Blue Chip Farm Animal Refuge, Adopt-a-Highway, the CEO Food Bank, Trunk-or-Treat at the Luzerne Co. Fairgrounds, Lake Fest, just to name a few. Fundraisers have included Krispy Kreme sales, a Psychic Night event to benefit the Victims Resource Center, and a Trivia evening to benefit Toys for Tots. Finally, the Back Mountain Kiwanis Club proudly sponsors a Harvey's Lake t-ball team and participates in Kiwanis International’s Early Childhood Learning Initiative. Our club is limited only by our members’ imaginations!
