Community Service
Community Service is one of Rotary International’s Five Avenues of Service and is the heart of our Club’s effort to improve life in our local community. Particular emphasis is given to helping members of the military and their families, children, the aged, the handicapped and those members of our community in most need of assistance.
Here’s a brief description of some community service projects our members have participated in:
With Integrated Family & Community Services (IFCS): In addition to our significant financial support, we help with food drives for the food bank, provide volunteers and participants in their fund raising events like Nibbles & Sips and Puttin’ for a Purpose, Backpacks for Schools, Mother’s Day Basket assembly and delivery, Thanksgiving and Christmas Basket assembly and delivery, bimonthly jelly drives for the food bank.
For Douglas/Elbert Task Force: In addition to significant financial support, volunteers do onsite projects like painting, helping with minor repairs and/or reorganization in the facility, bimonthly jelly drives and food drives for the food bank.
For the Ronald McDonald Houses in Denver & Aurora: Volunteers prepare a meal quarterly for families. (See description in greater detail below)
HRRC has “adopted” the Sedalia Elementary School which has a high percentage of low income students. We support the Parent Teachers Organization (PTO) financially in their fund-raising “Rock the Barn” every August. We do a Teacher Appreciation Breakfast in the spring. The Literacy Committee has provided weekly Rotary Readers volunteers to help struggling 2nd graders learn to read.  HRRC purchased Race to Read books for the library and art supplies for the art teacher.
