From July 2015 to June 2016, our club gave out $94,000+ to various projects in our local community, including $21,000 to Lemelson STEM Academy (Title 1 elementary school), and $40,000 in higher ed and vocational scholarships, with the remainder to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, science fairs, RYLA and exchange students, and awards for teachers and law enforcement.
 
 
 
Rotarians, families, and friends filled filled 100 backpacks with food and books for children who face food insecurities during the Christmas school break. The backpacks were delivered to Anderson and Libby Booth elementary schools the next day. (December 2016) 
INTERNATIONAL IMPACT - We gave out $61,000+ to 7 projects around the world, including: 
PANAMA
- Our club, with support from other Rotary clubs, is undertaking a major project for an orphanage for disabled children in Panama. 


NEPAL - The Cow Farm Project, has produced milk sales revenue of almost $600 to date. Profits from the project will help sustain BTF’s maternal/child wellness and education efforts in the remote Humla District of northern Nepal. They will conduct two 5-day Safe Motherhood classes in November educating a total of 50 women.
