WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE FOR THE KIWI CLUB!
Thoughts on the COVID-19 in the Midst of the Uncertainty
How to describe what this unprecedented time in all history means to us, the Kiwi Club, and to the Airline Industry in general?
There are no words. We all do what we must: follow the guidelines set forth by our National and State Government, as well as the CDC. We pray for all who are most effected - the health care professionals on the front lines, the workers in the essential businesses, like our grocery stores & pharmacies.
The truck drivers who deliver the items we most need. And our airline family – pilots, flight attendants, passenger service reps, all who work in our industry to provide essential travel.
They, too, are considered first responders during this pandemic.
Our hearts go out to all the families this virus has touched in any way, especially those who have lost loved ones. And we pray for all who are not able to work or to provide for their families.
Give us courage and strength and gratitude for what we have.
Give us a heart to reach out to others who are struggling.
Let this be a time of reflection on what is important in our lives. May we come through this period kinder, more thoughtful, and more thankful.

About the Kiwi Club
There are now 44 Kiwi chapters in 21 states making up our national organization. The individual chapters support many of their local charities and worthy causes, including shelters for abused women and children, food pantries, breast cancer awareness, the Ronald McDonald House, Guide Dogs for the Blind, to name a only a few. As a group, we support Wings, an organization that provides aid to American Airlines Flight Attendants who are in critical need of financial assistance as a result of illness, injury, calamity or disability. Additionally, we take care of our own by donating $1 of our dues to the National Kiwi Fund, a fund that helps Kiwis in need. Read about our Kiwi Club National Endeavor, click here.
Kiwis know how to have fun! However, we combine the fun with caring - for each other and our communities. At our meetings and social events, you will always hear laughter - we laugh at our flight tales and reminisce about the wonderful adventures we had during our flying careers and now in our everyday lives.
If you are interested in becoming a member of the Kiwi Club, please contact the National Vice President, K-Lynn Hoffmann Yelvington, of the Carefree Kiwi Chapter.
Kiwis meet every two years for Convention, where the business of the club takes place and National officers are elected for the next term. Although one purpose for having a convention is to take care of the business of the club, we find time to kick up our heels while enjoying a resort or location chosen and hosted by a local Kiwi chapter or chapters.
