Community Participation



Aktion Club of Gloucester County

Aktion Club of Gloucester County is a community service organization sponsored by The Arc Gloucester and Kiwanis Club of Greater Woodbury. Aktion Club is designed to inspire adults with developmental disabilities to take leadership roles and make a difference in the community. Club members give back by conducting fundraisers and carrying out service projects; being part of a club improves self-esteem!

Aktion Club of Gloucester County was established in 2011 and received its Charter from Kiwanis in 2012. Since then members have participated in various service projects including: Operation USO to collect donations for the troops, creating holiday greetings for residents of local assisted living facilities, collecting food donations for the local food banks and animal shelters, a winter coat drive, and much more! One of the most recent campaigns was the winter coat drive, 308 coats were collected for men, women, and children in the South Jersey area distributed by the People for People Foundation. Aktion Club also supports Kiwanis Internationals Eliminate Campaigns, focused on eliminating maternal and neonatal tetanus around the world. Beginning in 2013 Aktion Club has collected $145 to date, which protects about 80 mothers and children. The organization isn't all work though! Every year, Aktion Club holds their annual Charter Night where members get together to celebrate their job well done for assisting and supporting organizations through donations, fundraisers, and service projects. It's also a time to look back on the incredible connections they've made within their community and beyond!
