Doernbecher Children’s Hospital

“Whenever we contribute to the cure of a child
with cancer, Kiwanians are part of it.”

– H. Stacy Nicholson, M.D., Chairman of the OHSU Department of Pediatrics and Physician-in-Chief of Doernbecher Children’s Hospital

The Kiwanis Doernbecher Children’s Cancer Program is a partner in furthering these research efforts by supporting the training of the next generation of children’s cancer specialists. Applying the expertise they develop through the Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Fellowship Program, these young physicians will spend the next 40 years caring for children and seeking cures for currently untreatable forms of cancer.

Children from Central Oregon have made hundreds of visits to Doernbecher. Your contributions serve children from YOUR COMMUNITY.

The Veteran by Ted Lyster

A tribute to Veterans written by Bend Kiwanian and well known Cowboy Poet, Ted Lyster:

2013-11-11_2049

“…They raised their hand

        And said “I swear…”

     Regardless of the risk they bear..

    …Each can add “Veteran to their name!!”

2012-2013 Bend Kiwanis 89th Year of Service to the Bend Community

 

The Bend Kiwanis Club has a long and rich history of serving the Bend Community. At a May 1924 gathering at the former Pilot Butte Inn, the first meeting of the Bend Kiwanis Club was held. Bend Kiwanis Club was the first service club in our community. Our Club’s motto is “Making a Difference”, and has been embraced by our members from our inception.

Some of these projects from the beginning of Bend Kiwanis Club have continued to present day, such as, the support of 4H and FFA programs and the purchasing of land for parks, park development and providing play structures in parks. Other long standing projects have been support of the Boy and Girl Scout programs, college scholarships and providing resources, manpower and equipment to non-profit organizations.

This year (2012-2013) the Bend Kiwanis Club budgeted for  scholarship money available to 4H and FFA, Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp, and High School Scholarships.

 The Bend Kiwanis Club members have donated services to:

 Red Cross – Bend Christmas Parade – Neighborhood Impact

July 4th Pet Parade and Games In The Park – United Way Days of Caring

 Central Oregon’s Got Talent

ODOT Road Clean-up – Ronald McDonald House

SMART – Volunteers in Medicine -Grandma’s House –  Scouting Programs
And many, many more…

If you are interested in getting involved please contact us and submit your contact information. Thank you we look forward to reaching out to new members and continuing to serve the community.
