Meet our Aktion Club volunteers. Aktion Club has a busy holiday calendar of local events and volunteer work. Like you, giving to those less fortunate and the causes in which we believe gives our Aktion Club volunteers a feeling of connectedness to our community. Aktion Club is one of many options we have the staff and resources to offer the children and adults we serve because of donor support.
Aktion Club is a Kiwanis service club for adults with disabilities, with more than 12,000 members worldwide. Aktion Clubs welcome members from organizations like ours and other community programs that support individuals with disabilities. We joined in March of 2018 after meeting other
club members attending the Alpine Kiwanis Annual Dinner where Goldie Floberg Center was the recipient of grant funds. Goldie Floberg’s first members, Anne Marie and staff member Elizabeth Garcia, quickly recruited friends and roommates to add seven more members by this fall.
Since joining, Aktion Club has volunteered for causes like Alpine Kiwanis Brat Days and Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful. Please, stop and say “hi” if you see us ringing bells for Salvation Army.
Jim L. said that he “likes everything about Aktion Club.” He recently spent a morning helping by counting the cars coming to a Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful recycling event in Roscoe.
Volunteer opportunities like these align with the Goldie Floberg Values of Teamwork, Leadership, Growth, and Fun. We are always grateful for community partners like Kiwanis and donor support which make options like these possible. We can’t wait to run into you helping in our community.
Director, Fund Development (and Saying Thanks)
