Kiwanis Club Marketplace seeks volunteers


CAVE CREEK – The Kiwanis Club of Carefree, a non-profit organization, is seeking volunteer assistance for the Kiwanis Marketplace Thrift Store, 6535 E. Cave Creek Road, in Cave Creek.

With nearly three years of operation, the popular Kiwanis Marketplace is in need of additional volunteers staff to help run the retail establishment. Proceeds support Kiwanis Club of Carefree scholarships and other programs for children of the north Valley.


When our part-time residents head back to their summer homes, our volunteer force greatly depletes while our sales continue to increase.
