The activities are part of Kiwanis One Day, a global day of service that unites the entire Kiwanis family, including Kiwanis, Aktion Club, Circle K, Key Club, Builders Club and K-Kids. On the fourth Saturday of October, more than a dozen volunteers in Danville will join volunteers around the world as club members celebrate fellowship in devoting a few hours to hands-on service. Kiwanis International projects that the annual Kiwanis One Day event will contribute nearly 1 million service hours to communities around the world in just 24 hours.

“We are proud to join our fellow Kiwanis family members around the globe to participate in Kiwanis One Day,” said Kathy McBee, a Kiwanis Club of Danville director and chairwoman of the club’s Public Relations Committee. “Kids need Kiwanis, in Danville and around the world, and this is our way of making sure kids served by Wilderness Trace Development Center in our community have what they need to thrive, prosper and grow. And the energy, commitment and camaraderie surrounding this single day makes the experience of hands-on service even more gratifying for our members as they make an immediate, measurable impact on our local community.”

Kiwanis One Day was designated by Kiwanis International to unite in service all youth and adult members from different parts of the Kiwanis family.
