What is a District Fundraising Initiative (DFI)?
They are the 3 causes that the Cal-Nev-Ha District of Circle K support through fundraising! These three causes are UNICEF, Kiwanis Family House, and Pediatric Trauma Program.
Across more than 190 countries and territories, disadvantaged children struggle to survive, thrive and fulfill their potential. UNICEF is the world’s largest provider of vaccines and they support child health and nutrition, safe water and sanitation, quality education and skill building, HIV prevention and treatment for mothers and babies, and the protection of children and adolescents from violence and exploitation. Nearly 1,000 children die everyday due to a lack of safe drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH). UNICEF’s signature project efforts target Haiti’s emergency needs with a complete WASH response package; supporting emergency water access interventions for people in drought-affected areas; and providing internally displaced people with alternative sustainable sanitation strategies.
Kiwanis Family House
The Kiwanis Family House strives to provide housing and support to families of seriously ill or injured children and adults being treated at the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, CA. The funds raised will go towards providing additional resources and improve the stay for these families so that they can be there to support.
Pediatric Trauma Program
The Pediatric Trauma Program aims to develop local projects which will reduce the number of children who are killed or injured by trauma. These projects include promoting community outreach, providing education materials, and assisting partner hospitals. The funds raised will go towards the end goal of preventing unintentional injury and death as well as providing safety items for children.
