The Kiwanis Club sponsors the Citronelle Key Club and gives a $1000 scholarship to a Senior Club member each year. It also purchases books for three head start schools which the members go to and read. The schools are Citronelle, Mt.Vernon, and McIntosh. In addition, the Kiwanis Club sponsors a camper at Camp Smile in Mobile. It does all this from the funds that it raise with the pancake breakfast held each year.

    The mission of the Kiwanis Club is helping children not only in the local community but around the world. Kiwanis International created the Eliminate Project which the Citronelle Kiwanis Club contributes to. This Project rids tetanus in third world countries by providing the shots necessary to eliminate this illness.
