Hey everybody! It’s Michele from Barry’s Auto Body. Today I’d like to shine light on an organization that has made a tremendous impact on me, my business and my community. The Verrazano Kiwanis Club is a hard-working group of community champions that works hard to raise money and awareness for charitable organizations in Staten Island, New York. From veterans to sick children, the Verrazano Kiwanis Club has helped them all – making the community a better place to live, one helping hand at a time.
In September of 2018, the Verrazano Kiwanis Club celebrated its two year anniversary and presented local charities with $50,000. Earlier this month, Barry’s Auto Body Shop recognized the club as the Community Organization of the Month for the truly amazing achievements that its members have made. Since its inception, just 3 years ago, the club has raised approximately $135,000 for local organizations and families!
I am proud to be a member of this extraordinary group and I am looking forward to becoming the club’s president in October of 2019. I hope to continue raising the bar, raise more money for those in need and bring the community together through fundraisers, and monthly meetings. Be sure to follow the Verrazano Kiwanis Club on Facebook to see all of the amazing things being done for Staten Island!
