Kiwanis One Day of Service

Kiwanis members serve their communities all year long. But the excitement for service really builds in April each year when Kiwanis members come together for Kiwanis One Day—a day of community service that is felt around the world. Each year, Kiwanis clubs around the world join in a day of service.

It's a global effort, but it's made of personal commitments.

After all, Kiwanis One Day consists of the involvement of Kiwanis club members around the world. The entire Kiwanis family—Kiwanis KidsBuilders ClubKey ClubCKIAktion Club and Kiwanis clubs—joins forces for this large-scale service project.

Projects fill a specific need in each community and have included everything from building playgrounds to volunteering at a shelter to stocking shelves at a food pantry. It begins with each club’s participation. It extends to the impact on each community. And it results in an international spirit of service that inspires people worldwide.



For 2016, Kiwanis clubs in Lakeland and Winter Haven partnered with United Way of Central Florida for their annual Day of Caring. Teams of volunteers from area companies helped with projects Friday, April 15 at UWCF partner organizations. Kiwanis Club volunteers and individuals supported United Way agencies on Saturday, April 16.
