We are excited to announce that the Circle K International Board of Trustees has approved five 2023 Tomorrow Fund grants. Thanks to the Kiwanis Children’s Fund, the following clubs and districts will receive support to help the most vulnerable members of their communities and foster a sustainable world. We look forward to seeing the impact these exciting projects make on campuses and communities across the United States.
University of Florida, Florida District: Her Natural Wreath
The University of Florida Circle K International club is partnering with Her Natural Wreath, a nonprofit that provides free monthly haircare and styling sessions for young girls in foster care in the Gainesville, Florida, area. Stylists strive to empower the girls, building their self-confidence and helping them see their hair as a lovely expression of their inner beauty.
Northeastern University, New England District: Lend to Learners
Through the Lend to Learners program, Northeastern University CKI members help make sure all children in Boston, Massachusetts, have equal access to education. In the face of rising costs, the club eases the pressure on families in need by providing school supply kits for their children.
Newman University, Kansas District: Recycling
Circle K International members at Newman University have reinstated a campus recycling program following a multiyear absence. They aim to keep the program going to save resources, prevent pollution and support public health.
Georgia District: Sustainability SERVEathon
The 2023 CKI Georgia District Convention will be home to a “SERVEathon” with stations to educate attendees about ways to reduce their environmental impact and adopt sustainable alternatives. Participants will earn points and prizes for completing the fun and creative sustainability projects at each station.
New Jersey District: The Essentials Project
Inspired to do something to help both women and LGBTQ+ individuals, New Jersey District Circle K International members are making care packages of essential hygiene products and children’s items for Avanzar [avanzarnow.org]. The inclusive shelter and community support organization promotes “physical safety, emotional well-being, individual freedom and economic equality.”
