The Kiwanis Foundation of Evanston has awarded $2,500 to assist with relief efforts in Haiti. The local club is a part of an international organization with clubs in many foreign countries, including Haiti.

We feel that the Haitian people merit our support in this terrible time, and we are pleased that our local Foundation can help,” said Richard Fitzgerald, president of the Kiwanis Foundation of Evanston.

Each year the Kiwanis Foundation of Evanston gives nearly $30,000 in grants to local organizations that support youth and children.
