Service Above Self- Locally and Internationally
September 2021-  Club members volunteered at Bernie's Book Bank, an organization dedicated to increasing book ownership among underserved infants, toddlers and school age children throughout Chicagoland.  Together we "picked and packed" books for 500 children.
Beyond buying eggs and cheese every month, we "shop" throughout the year for the Wheeling Food Pantry and last February we held our first ever "Drive Through" Food drive.
Earlier this year, our club invested $1000 in a grant to the Rotary Club of Pursat and Sustainable Cambodia for a WASH project in Domrey Sor Village.  We just received the report that the project had been successfully completed.  Underground latrines were constructed for 5 families.  These families will now complete the construction of walls and ceilings.  
In addition 8 families were given Tulip water filters.
The third component of the grant was education and training on the advantages of using latrines and filtered water as well as instructions on how to use the filters and store water once filtered.
