KK Service Projects and Causes

Circle K International’s trustee Dave Patel invites K-Kids to fundraise for the Brick x Brick Project during Trick or Treat for UNICEF

Circle K International invites clubs to fundraise for a meaningful cause during October and throughout the year. UNICEF’s Brick x Brick project creates classrooms built out of recycled plastic waste. This project will help the 1.6 million children in Côte d’Ivoire, Africa who can’t attend school. Around Halloween, host a trunk or treat and take donations, or dress up and go door to door — but instead of asking for candy, ask for change. Or consider holding a fundraiser later this year. Find a canister wrapper, graphics and more information on the Brick x Brick resources page.
