The bags were meticulously hand-decorated by The Club's staff.  Once complete, The Club's staff also delivered the bags to the kids' doorsteps.  Even behind masks, it was easy to make out the smiles!

DAYTON-This year has been challenging for us all, especially many of the kids served by The Club. To help spread some joy, The Club's Board of Directors and staff hatched a plan to provide holiday gift bags to our members. What happened next is a shining example of the giving nature of our community.

Kiwanis Club of Dayton, due in part to a shared board/club member, came up with an idea to provide a little something to The Club's kids while simultaneously supporting local business. The idea: Purchase $1,000 in Dayton Dollars to be included in the holiday gift bags for the kids. Dayton Dollars can be redeemed for goods at any Columbia County retailer.

Thanks to Dayton Kiwanis' incredibly generous, thoughtful, and creative idea, The Club provided each member with 20 Dayton Dollars to spend locally on themselves. In addition to the Dayton Dollars, the holiday gift bags included cards from staff, art activities, food items, and other miscellaneous goodies.
