About Us

The Arlington Kiwanis Club in Jacksonville, Florida was chartered in October, 1956. We are a “hands on” service club, and our members contribute an average of 40 service hours per person, the highest in our Kiwanis division.  The mission of Kiwanis is “to change the world, one child and one community at a time.”

Arlington Kiwanis is one of eight clubs on the First Coast, comprising Division 5 of the Florida District of Kiwanis International. We serve primarily the 32211 and 32277 zip code areas of Jacksonville; however, as members of one of the largest global service organizations, Kiwanis International, we contribute to projects that have an impact on children around the world.

Some of our past and current projects include food drives for Arlington Community Services; Christmas party for needy families; the Dictionary Project; Aktion Club at North Florida School of Special Education; Circle K Club (CKI) at University of North Florida; donations of school supplies to Childrens Home Society; donations of hygiene supplies to Sulzbacher Center; transporting the elderly to church; monthly Ft. Caroline Road cleanup; and many more.

Being a member of the Arlington Kiwanis provides numerous opportunities to make a real impact on children in our area, and we invite you to browse our website to see what it is we do.

The Objects of Kiwanis

The six permanent Objects of Kiwanis International were approved by Kiwanis club delegates at the 1924 Convention in Denver, Colorado. Through the succeeding decades, they have remained unchanged.

  • To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life.
  • To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
  • To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business, and professional standards.
  • To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship.
  • To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build better communities.
  • To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and goodwill.
