2020 VFCC Charity of Choice
This year, our Valrico Fishhawk Chamber of Commerce President, Melissa Canfield, has chosen a charity that is near and dear to her heart and was proud to have the support of the entire board in choosing the Kiwanis Club of Greater Brandon as the 2020 Charity of Choice.
This year, as one of our chamber’s major focuses, giving back to our community, partnering with Kiwanis Club of Greater Brandon, we can help grow their backpack program, their literacy program, and help establish a local food bank for those most in need. This is a wonderful opportunity for our chamber to really grow and help those less fortunate in our local community. There is such a giving spirit in this chamber and we cannot wait to see the long-lasting effect VFCC will have on the Kiwanis Club of Greater Brandon as our 2020 Charity of Choice!
About the Kiwanis Club of Greater Brandon: The Kiwanis Club of Greater Brandon, Florida was established in May 1960 and continues today to serve the Greater Brandon community, especially its children. We currently sponsor over a dozen programs and provide support to additional charitable organizations within the Brandon Community with the same goal and mission as ourselves—serving the youth of our community.
Members of every age attend regular meetings, experience fellowship, raise funds for various causes, and participate in service projects that help their communities. Professionals who join the Kiwanis Club of Greater Brandon and attend regular meetings are also afforded the excellent opportunity of networking—meeting and conversing with other members, guest speakers, and taking part in our social events and service projects.
