Letter: Now, more than ever, we need KiwanisIn these troubled times, people are hurting.

To the Editor:
In these troubled times, people are hurting. Many children and families who a few months ago felt like they were doing OK today hang on by threads, and those who were already at risk face even greater hardships, harder choices.
For more than 90 years, Kiwanis has been helping children and communities, and we believe that now is not the time to hunker down. It’s not the time to retreat from responsibility and compassion. Now is the time to lead, to offer people an opportunity to help others.
We believe that now, more than ever, is the time for Kiwanis, and we invite and encourage people to join us, to be part of a global service organization where one person-you-can make the difference.
Kiwanis has numerous opportunities for people to get involved, and provides numerous benefits to members-friendship, fellowship, business networking-in addition to the service Kiwanis provides to children and communities.
We need your hands and your hearts to help those who cannot always help themselves. The more hands, the more children and communities we can help.
Please join Kiwanis as we work to change the world for the better, one child and one community at a time.
We are fortunate to have three Kiwanis Clubs in our community for you to choose from. or information about Kiwanis, and how you can be a part of this organization, contact one of our club presidents: Kay Kuhlmann of Dawnbreakers Kiwanis at (651) 385-8836, Roger Knudtsen of the Golden K Kiwanis at (651) 388-1221, or Greg Roe of the Noontime Kiwanis at (651) 385-0155.
Please do it today. The children cannot wait.
Bruce Klair is Kiwanis District governor.
