Global Day of Service

by Oct 22, 2021Nonprofits, South Brunswick

Kiwanis Club of Southport-Oak Island to help in the garden at South Brunswick Middle School.

On Saturday, October 30, Kiwanis Club of Southport-Oak Island will help South Brunswick Middle School students and community members redevelop the existing planting beds at the school, including building a new higher bed for students with physical limitations. Work will begin at 8:30 am.

The project is part of Kiwanis One Day, a global day of service that unites Kiwanians around the world as they devote time to a hands-on service project. Kiwanis International estimates that the annual event will contribute nearly 1 million service hours to communities around the world.

Kiwanis Club of Southport-Oak Island is dedicated to serving the children of Brunswick County through service, education, guidance and leadership. The club supports numerous programs in the county’s elementary, middle and high schools designed to instill a life-long commitment to service among students of all ages and to develop the skills necessary to become community leaders.

“Kids in Southport, Boiling Spring Lakes, Supply, Bolivia, Oak Island and around the world need Kiwanis, and these projects are our way of making sure our communities have what they need to thrive, prosper and grow,” says George Bayless, president of the Kiwanis Club of Southport-Oak Island. “We’ve found that inviting community members to our service projects is a terrific way to show who we are and what we do and to provide an opportunity for them to learn more about our organization.” 

Kiwanis One Day was established to unite youth and adult members from different parts of the Kiwanis family in service together. The Kiwanis family of programs includes Circle K International for university students, Key Club for students ages 14 to 18, Builders Club for students ages 11 to 14, K-Kids for students ages 6 to 12 and Action Club for adults living with disabilities.
