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. 

Celebrate Community is the evolution of Kiwanis One Day — scheduled on the fourth Saturday of October to recognize the great work being done by our clubs around the world. While Kiwanis One Day is still commemorated by many clubs, we encourage clubs to broaden their reach by partnering with other organizations’ service clubs.

In 2023, Celebrate Community is September 11-17. 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.
