See’s Candies

Martinez Kiwanis is once again selling See’s Candies from November 28 through December 24. You’ll get the same great value as well as a fine selection of candy without having to wait in line. 

The selling of See’s Candies is the primary fundraiser for this local non-profit service organization.  All proceeds will be donated throughout the community to other non-profit organizations that serve youth, the elderly, and the needy.  In addition, scholarships will be given to Martinez high school seniors who have either achieved a level of academic excellence and wish to further their education by attending a 4-year college, or have chosen to pursue a career in a vocational program.

Martinez Kiwanis is a member of Kiwanis International, a global service organization of volunteers whose mission is to improve the lives of children throughout the world, one child and one community at a time. Kiwanis has been a member of the Martinez community for over 85 years and has been dedicated in fulfilling that mission.  The club is currently 62 members strong and made up of people who wish to give back to their community by volunteering their talent, expertise and time.  Collectively, they give over 2,000 volunteer hours per year to the community and other non- profit organizations, a group clearly dedicated to service. 

You can help support this worthwhile organization by purchasing See’s Candies at one of their local locations and/or visiting
