Our Community Service
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. The Kiwanis of Oxford, Ohio is dedicated to serving the local community through various service and fundraising projects. Our club has been in service to our community since 1926. We are part of Kiwanis International, an organization serving children for over 100 years.
The Oxford members are proud supporters and contributors to over 25 service projects and programs annually in the local community. This includes being corporate sponsors of Boy Scout Troop 930, Cub Scout Pack 961, Crew, and Indian Creek Girl Scouts.
The Oxford Club also sponsors Kiwanis-based Service Leadership Programs in each of the Talawanda School district schools. They include:

- Key Club at Talawanda High School -Key Club is the oldest and largest service organization for teens, and teaches leadership through service to others.
