The local chapter of Kiwanis International was the Ilwaco-Long Beach Kiwanis Club, started in 1936 and closed in 2015. Throughout the club's life, the local chapter supported youth needs and activities on the peninsula.
Thanks to archived photos from Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum, the banner image on this page is from the early days of the club, in the 1930s on the beach in Seaview, by Charles Fitzpatrick.
The Ilwaco-Long Beach Kiwanis Club supports the Food4Kids Backpack Program for Ocean Beach Schools.
The Food4Kids Backpack Program receives an annual grant from this endowment. More than one hundred and fifty students receive weekly backpacks of quality balanced meals and healthy snacks, along with shelf-stable milk and fresh fruit for "all children in the family" for each weekend during the school year.
