Have you ever changed a person’s life in a single day? The Texas Ramp Project does it hundreds of times a year! We build wheelchair ramps for disabled or elderly people who can’t afford to buy one. In a few hours on a Saturday morning, we give these folks the freedom to leave their home again—the home where they want to remain but whose steps have imprisoned them.

Since January, 2009, the Kiwanis Club of College Station has been building ramps for those in need. We have teamed up with churches and other community groups to make this happen. During 2016, we built 79 ramps.


Officer of the Year Award

Each year in May (Peace Officers Memorial Day) our club attempts to recognize the police departments in the Bryan/College Station area in some small way by sponsoring the Outstanding Law Enforcement Officer Award. Bryan/College Station area is served by four exceptional police departments that have overlapping authorities: the Bryan Police Department, the College Station Police Department, the Sheriffs Department and the Texas A&M University Police Department.


Child Car Safety Seat Checkup Event

Misuse and non-use of child car seats is very high.  In order to properly protect a child, they need to be in the correct seat for their age, weight, height and developmental stage. And, the car seat needs to be properly installed in the vehicle.  Certified National Child Passenger Safety Technicians will be on hand to give free car seat inspections.

The proper use of child safety seats reduces the risk of injury and death, leading to reduced medical costs, avoidance of lost future earnings, and improved quality of life. These economic benefits are an estimated $2,196 per child age 0 to 4 and $2,610 per child age 4 to 7 for new seats distributed, and $621 per child for seat misuse corrected with an assumed 75% continued use.

Each year since 2011, Kiwanis has sponsored an annual child car safety seat inspection. Between 2011 and 2016, the events accomplished:

  • 794 Car Seat Inspections
  • 512 New Seats Distributed
  • 21 Children Arrived Correctly Restrained
  • $1,047,340 Economic Impact on the Community

Our next child car seat inspection will be on

Saturday, April 22, 2017, 8:30 AM – 11:00 AM

at  

Bryan Towne Center (Near Target), 3125 Wildflower Drive, Bryan

This event is sponsored by the College Station Kiwanis Club in partnership with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Passenger Safety Project in cooperation with the Texas Department of Transportation.

Bring your child and know their age, weight and height. Grandparents are also invited to attend.
