Reach out and Celebrate Community!

When we work together, we make the world better. That’s why Kiwanis International participates every year in Celebrate Community — a weeklong initiative that promotes collaboration between Kiwanis International, Lions Clubs International, Optimist International and Rotary International. The event happens the second week of each September. In 2024, Celebrate Community will take place September 8-14.

Celebrate Community is the evolution of Kiwanis One Day. While Kiwanis One Day is still commemorated by many clubs, we encourage clubs to broaden their reach by partnering with other organizations’ service clubs. Service projects can focus on the environment, food insecurity and hunger, health and wellness, and education and literacy.

Don’t forget to spread the word about your collaboration. Use your club’s website, social media accounts and more — including contacts with local media. We’ve included a sample news release to help you. For sample press releases translated into other languages, see below.

For examples of the impact clubs can make during Celebrate Community, check out our video for the 2023 event.
