For over a century, Kiwanis has been serving the children and families of Southwest Louisiana. In honor of our 100th birthday, the Southwest Louisiana Kiwanis Clubs established the Kiwanis Family Fund in partnership with the Children’s Miracle Network of CHRISTUS Ochsner Southwestern Louisiana Foundation.

The Kiwanis Family Fund will help families with children being treated at CHRISTUS Ochsner Lake Area Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Labor & Delivery and Kid’s Team outpatient therapy program. Funds raised will help assist families who find themselves faced with difficult financial situations to afford things like special adaptive equipment, travel expenses, car seats and more.

Participating Kiwanis Clubs include: Calcasieu, DeRidder, Jennings, Lake Charles, North Lake Charles, South Lake Charles, Southwest Contraband, Sulphur and West Cal.

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time.  Donations to the Kiwanis Family Fund at CHRISTUS Ochsner SWLA Foundation 501c3 may be tax deductible (Tax ID#47-1496376).
