Celebrate Kiwanis Family Month in November

Each November, clubs are encouraged to celebrate Kiwanis Family Month by collaborating on service projects, fundraisers or advocacy efforts with other Kiwanis-sponsored clubs. The Kiwanis family is composed of K-Kids, Builders Club, Key Club, Circle K International and Aktion Club. Together, these are known as Kiwanis Service Leadership Programs (SLP), and are designed to prepare each participant to be the most engaged members of their communities. 

Kiwanis Family Month doesn’t have to end after November, it can be every month if you want it to be!  Reach out and:
  • Invite SLP members to attend an Aktion Club meeting
  • Plan a celebration that can include all Service Leadership Programs
  • Write notes of encouragement to Key Club members who are preparing to take college exams
  • Thank advisors and officers of your sponsoring club(s) for their dedication
  • Plan a community service project or fundraiser that members from many clubs can participate in
Not sure what activity or event to plan as a Kiwanis family? Here are a few ideas to get you started:
  • Organize a street or park clean-up
  • Hold a pancake breakfast or dinner for a cause
  • Volunteer for a food bank or collect, pack and deliver canned food to a food bank
  • Volunteer at a local animal shelter
  • Create thank-you cards/gifts for law enforcement officers or firemen
  • Create care packages or write letters to those serving in the military
  • Hold a coat drive
  • Make no-sew blankets to donate to a local shelter
  • Knit caps for kids in the hospital who have gone through chemotherapy
