The Kiwanis of Cape Coral has pledged to give more than $100,000 over five years to The Eliminate Project.

The money will help UNICEF eliminate maternal/neonatal tetanus.

Campaign chairman Randy DeLay and Kiwanis International Foundation external relations officer Matt Morris visited the Kiwanis Club on April 19 and collected the initial $20,000 donation.

The Kiwanis also has a program to honor the memories of those killed on Sept. 11 and to honor the men and women of the military.

For the next few months, commemorative flags will be sold at the Kiwanis Thrift Store, 708 SE 47th Terrace. The item also features the bald eagle standing guard over the flag, with the words “September 11, 2001: We Will Never Forget.” The cost is $25.

For more information, visit www.mycapecoralkiwanis.org, or go to a weekly meeting at 7 a.m. Tuesday at Faith Presbyterian Church, 4544 Coronado Parkway.
