The Emporia Kiwanis Club has been doing a great job at helping children in the community, so much so that the international Kiwanis magazine published an article about their work.

After the initial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Flint Hills Community Health Center was forced to stop its low-income childhood immunization program due to a lack of funds. Club President Joan Kloppenberg says that getting kids immunized is critical to maintaining their health.

The Health Center was short $607.50. By raising funds through the club's annual pancake feed, they were able to raise the necessary funds to get roughly 30 children immunized.
