Kiwanis Kids, with more than 36,000 members, is a service leadership program for primary school students. K-Kids provides students with opportunities to work together on service projects, develop leadership potential and create strong moral character. K-Kids is a "student-led" community-service organization, which operates under school regulations and draws its members from the student body. K-Kids are currently raising funds for The Eliminate Project, a joint effort of the Kiwanis family and UNICEF to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus from the face of the Earth, especially through Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF.

The K-Kids at Cape May City Elementary School (CMCE) with the Kiwanis Club of Cape May K-Kids Advisor, Michele Bennett along with Megan Reed, faculty support, wrote out Holiday wishes and encouragement for Coast Guard recruits. The K-Kids enjoyed the activity and the time spent for the recruits who will not be home for the holidays. The K-Kids at CMCE have been listed as a Distinguished Club the past 2 years by KI for their service projects. Many of the students in Cape May are from the Coast Guard base. Cape May County, a Coast Guard Community, is an honor claimed by only 18 cities and one other county in the nation. The designation, which is confirmed by the United States Congress and United States Coast Guard, is recognition of a strong and special relationship between the people of Cape May County and local Coast Guard personnel.
