We got this from Dave Hendrix, a long time El Pasoan and contributor to the community. This is a program that helps in many ways. We hope that you can support it.

The Kiwanis Clubs of El Paso would like you to help grow our Kiwanis “Show your love of Country” Flag Program. Our goal is to make El Paso the most patriotic city in the country! Our flag program is over 20 years old and is growing every year. Last year we placed over 2,500 flags throughout El Paso, Horizon & Socorro.
We provide a flag to display on our five most patriotic days: Memorial Day, Flag Day, 4th of July, Labor Day and Veterans Day.
We partner with a local Boy Scout Troop or Youth Group in designated areas throughout El Paso & vicinities to deliver the flags (like a paper route). They will install a 12” pvc pipe in front of your business or in your yard to hold the flag, they deliver your flag in the early morning and pick up your flag right before sunset on the designated Holidays above.
This is a super convenient program for the subscriber, a money maker for the Boy Scout Troop or Youth group and a patriotic achievement for the Kiwanis.
BTW – we need more youth groups to cover the N.E., the Lower Valley and Socorro. Have them contact me (see below).
For a minimum donation of $30 (more would be gratefully appreciated, the more you give the more your local youths of El Paso receive) pays for one flag a year. Your gift is tax deductible. Please make your check payable to:
Kiwanis Clubs of El Paso Foundation
