The club has a long history of Community Service especially to its children as well as world wide health projects. Recently the club has been named as a “Model Club” with its contributions to “The Eliminate Project”, a Kiwanis International effort to combat Neonatal Tetanus. It also was a major contributor to the world wide elimination of Iodine Deficiency Disorder. On a more local basis, the club built a 40 bed unit housing for campers at Kamp Kiwanis up in Taberg, New York. In addition, the club sponsored the chartering of Brookhaven Memorial Hospital in 1954. After that, it provided major support to pediatrics in the hospital as well as specialized equipment and care education for children in the Emergency Department. Other support of Sponsored Youth has been the sponsorship of Bellport High School Key Club, and Key Club and Venture Crew in the Patchogue Medford High School.
