The Kiwanis Club of Fairfield recently donated $10,000 to the Wakeman Boys & Girls Club for acquisition of a new van.

“The major emphasis of Kiwanis is our youth, and this fits perfectly with our mission,” Tom Maniscalco, the president of the Kiwanis Club of Fairfield, said in a statement announcing the donation.

The Wakeman Boys & Girls Club is located on Center Street in the Southport section of town.
