What can you do in one day?

 

Every year, Kiwanis club members around the world gather on the fourth Saturday in October for Kiwanis One Day. It’s a day set aside for clubs to work together to better their communities — and to invite friends and family to join them. 

This year, Kiwanis One Day will be October 23, 2021. As many clubs return to active service, be sure your club follows local guidelines and restrictions for gathering. You can find additional information about gatherings, social distancing and other important health updates at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) websites.

An additional initiative this year is Celebrate Community, an opportunity to participate in service projects with other volunteer organizations, including Lions Clubs International, Optimist International and Rotary International. Celebrate Community spans the week of October 10-16. This joint effort encourages clubs to work together to have a greater impact on their communities. All clubs in the Kiwanis family are encouraged to participate. More information and suggested projects can be found at kiwanis.org/celebratecommunity

For clubs that want to team up with other members of the Kiwanis family, One Day remains a perfect opportunity. Reach out to other Kiwanis family clubs: Aktion Club, Circle K International, Key Club, K-Kids and/or Builders Club. Popular projects for One Day include park cleanup, playground maintenance and painting local shelters.  

And invite others to join you! One Day is an ideal way to introduce your family, friends and colleagues to Kiwanis. When you show potential members a project that helps kids, you engage them in the Kiwanis mission. After One Day, invite your guests to your club’s in-person or online meeting. And be sure to share your One Day projects on your social media channels. Use the #OneDay hashtag if you are sharing a Kiwanis One Day project.
