I was asked the other day what our club does besides meet weekly at the Sunshine Factory, visit, listen to a speaker and have a wonderful breakfast. So I started going back through the last 6 months to let you know some of what the club does.
Would it surprise you to find out that we:
Welcomed our newest exchange student Aline Tomazelli from Brazil to the club.
Awarded two STRIVE Scholarships to Cooper High School students for increasing their GPA through the STRIVE program led by our club's Rotarians.
Purchased school supplies and backpacks for distribution through PRISM for the back to school program
Took a group of Tree House students fishing for an evening at Medicine Lake where they enjoyed a cook out of hot dogs, hamburgers and enjoyed the great outdoors.
Collected and distributed 110 Holiday Food Baskets through PRISM which also included hats and gloves through the Warm Hands Warm Hearts initiative in each bag.
Sold over 150 bags of coffee with all proceeds going to the Tree House for youth initiatives.
Raised over $300. through pocket change donations (and it's still growing!) for Rotary's Polio Plus initiative
In addition, we also gave back to the community through monetary donations to the following groups:
Local DARE officers
Armstrong Performing Arts
and many other activities and donations including Haiti Outreach.
So to answer the question, what does the CNHR Rotary club DO? Whatever we can to help make a difference within our community!
