Welcome to North Modesto Kiwanis! We are an eclectic mix of ages, genders, occupations, backgrounds and interests. We are all passionate about making our community and the world a better place for children so they can thrive. We are devoted to serving the children in our local community and also children all across the country and worldwide through unique and innovative service projects, fundraising initiatives and scholarships (see our scholarship page). We also have a 501C3 foundation that accepts tax deductible donations and contributions to our work.

We hold in-person meetings at 7 a.m. Thursdays at the ‘Papapolloni Mediterranean Bistro‘ located at 2501 McHenry Ave, Modesto, CA 95350. Breakfast is $15 per person. We usually wrap up at 8 a.m.

We continue to have live Zoom meetings in conjunction with the in-person meetings. If you would like to join our in-person or virtual meetings as a guest, please fill out the contact from.


Thank you to all the Car Owners, visitors, spectators and volunteers who will attend our biggest annual event — the American Graffiti Festival & Car Show — such a great event.

The event will be June 8 and 9, 2024 at the Modesto Junior College West Campus with the fabulous Parade on the evening of Friday the 7th around downtown Modesto and McHenry Avenue in Modesto.
All profits go to support local non-profits, scholarships and our large Christmas basket program.
