Sycamore Kiwanis Club donates $1,000 to DeKalb Family Services Agency – Shaw Local
SYCAMORE — The Sycamore Kiwanis Club recently donated $1,000 to the DeKalb County Family Services Agency to help offset costs associated with the agency’s 2019 move to 1325 Sycamore Road in DeKalb.
The DeKalb County Family Services Agency Building Fund is on a mission to raise the remainder of a $1.9 million project the agency undertook in 2019 to relocate and renovate. The fund was created due to the limitations of the agency’s former facility. DeKalb’s Family Services Agency oversees five community programs, including Youth Mentoring, Counseling Center, Children’s Advocacy Center, Community Action Program, and Senior Services.
The Sycamore Kiwanis Club is part of Kiwanis International, a global organization of volunteers whose goal is to change the world, one child and one community at a time. Kiwanis service projects aim to help communities, especially the needs of children, by devoting more than 6 million volunteer hours each year and investing more than $100 million each year in service projects that strengthen communities and help serve children.
The Kiwanis Club of Sycamore meets at 6 p.m. on the first and third Tuesday of each month at Sycamore Park Golf Club, 940 E. State St., Sycamore. During the pandemic, meetings will be held via Zoom at sycamorekiwanis.com.
