As we’re all impacted by the spread of COVID-19 to some degree, Kiwanis International wants to keep members and the kids we serve safe during this time. We are asking all clubs to postpone all events — including in-person meetings, projects and fundraisers — through the month of April. Up-to-date health information is available from the World Health Organization, your country’s health department, as well as local governmental health agencies.

We realize that interactions with fellow Kiwanians will be missed, and we encourage you to find ways to connect during this difficult time. Skype, Facebook chats and conference calls on a landline or mobile phone are all options. These resources can help your club stay connected and plan. Work together to generate ideas on how your club can help your community — and when things return to normal, you’ll be ready to help kids. Kiwanis will continue to serve you and provide ideas about how to continue making an impact. If you haven’t followed us on social media, please do. Follow Kiwanis on Facebook for the most up-to-date news and information.

Thank you for all you do for Kiwanis. Let’s work together to stay strong during this uncertain time so we’ll all be healthy and ready to help those who need us most.

Your friend in Kiwanis,
