Make an impression with the power of thanks

In addition to the Kiwanis advisor and faculty advisor, K-Kids clubs receive support from other volunteers, including parents, teachers, principals, business leaders, community leaders and more. Recognize those special individuals by asking members to show them appreciation.

Some ideas to get you started are:

          1. Hosting a recognition event, such as a breakfast or lunch.
          2. Personally calling each volunteer to thank them for their help.
          3. Sending thank-you cards.
          4. Delivering creative gifts with a short note. Here are a few ideas
              for inspiration:
                      a) Teacher appreciation:
                           Buy a measurement-themed gift and include the free
                           printable note with the words “You totally RULE:
                           Thanks for making this year so great!”

                       b) Volunteer appreciation:
                           (for a friend, coworker, neighbor, parent)
                           Buy a drink item and create your own note with the
                           words “People like you are so refreshing!” to include.

                       c) Youth worker appreciation:
                           (for a fellow teacher, principal, community
                           organization leader)
                           Buy a small potted herb like thyme, mint or
                           sage and create your own note that uses the
                           name of the herb in a fun way.
