But the Fayetteville Metro Kiwanis have developed a way to partner busy family life with community service.
"We don't get anything out of it other than we feel good, we know that we've done our part here in the community," said Fayetteville Metro Kiwanis President Lana Harris.
Members of this club are focused on the future. And that future is at the Boys and Girls Club in Fayetteville.
"Someday we're not going to be the Kiwanis club, we're going to be the golden Kiwanis and kids like these here at the club are going to replace us at the Kiwanis tables," Harris said.
This Kiwanis club is unique, because the members make meetings and service projects a family affair.
"It's a great way to show your children, whenever they're little, what mommy and daddy are doing to give back to the community and then they'll want to give back to the community," said Kiwanis secretary Whitney Branch. "That's how I got started. I was volunteering with my dad when I was six, picking up trash, and now I'm giving back."
The club volunteers in the community each month.
"That can be in the form of volunteering at an event, that could be picking up trash, that could be volunteering at the Boys and Girls Club," Branch said.
The Fayetteville Metro Kiwanis members are teaching children, including their own, about the power
of public service.
"We've got to start training them and teaching them the value of giving back to their community and making it a place that they want to be excited to live," said Harris.
"When we work with the Boys and Girls Club and you can see the impact that our programs have on these children, it's a warm fuzzy and it warms your heart," Branch said.
