Hooksett Kiwanis is a volunteer organization of women and men dedicated to improving the lives of children in the community and around the world.


Hooksett Kiwanis takes pride in providing leadership opportunities to middle and high school children. To help accomplish this, we are very proud to sponsor...

  • Kiwanis Builders Club of 75 members at Cawley Middle School,
  • Builders Club at Hillside Middle School in Manchester with 50 members, 
  • Kiwanis Key Club of 125 members at Manchester Central High School.

Hooksett Kiwanis also sponsors a Hooksett Community Food Pantry and Kid's Kloset where families can receive food and clothing at no cost. Please see tabs at left for additional information about these programs.

The Club's signature project is maintaining walking and biking trails at Head's Pond in Hooksett, including resurfacing nearly all of the 1.5 mile Head's Pond Trail from Route 3 to the Great Pond.

The Kiwanis Club of Hooksett meets for dinner on the first and third Wednesday of each month at 6:00 PM at  the function room at New England's Tap House restaurant.  Guests are always welcome. If you would like to join us for a meeting, contact Fred Bishop  at 603-625-1555 or by email at

Hooksett Kiwanis Named NH's Outstanding Volunteer Group

For the second time in the past four years, Hooksett Kiwanis has received a group service award. It is the only NH service club to be so honored. The award recognizes the volunteer work of Hooksett Kiwanis in operating the local Food Pantry, a Kid’s Kloset providing free clothing to needy children, sponsorship of three Youth Service Clubs with about 200 members, maintenance of walking trails in the community, hosting an annual awards event for community leaders, and numerous other community service projects. Together these represent about 3,000 volunteer hours of service. All of this volunteer work is completed by Hooksett Kiwanis with no Executive Director or paid staff.
