Chances are good that you know someone who has a child on the autism spectrum. Of every 68 children born today in the United States, one will have autism. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability in the U.S. – increasing 119 percent between 2000 and 2010.
This year the Zelienople Rotary Club decided to help. The club will donate proceeds from its annual spring pancake breakfast to Parents In Toto, an organization that serves families of children, teens and adults on the autism spectrum. The Parents In Toto Autism Center, located at 143 S. Main Street, Zelienople, provides a relaxed and comfortable environment where families can share ideas, learn from experts, explore new resources and make friends. Parents In Toto relies on charitable contributions to keep their services free of charge.
“On behalf of our families and staff at Toto, we certainly appreciate the efforts of the Zelienople Rotary members to help sustain Parents in Toto,” says Mary Limbacher, executive director.“Serving hundreds, if not thousands, of individuals and their families in Butler and surrounding counties who live with autism over the past eight years has been an honor. As a nonprofit, Parents in Toto relies on local donations, sponsorships, and grants to provide a dozen support groups, creative activities, and informative speaker presentations. Our programs span all ages and needs, targeting the well-being of the entire family as a haven of ideas, information and hope.”
The pancake breakfast fundraiser will be from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 10 at the American Legion Hall, 308 W. New Castle Street, Zelienople. Tickets, available for purchase at the door, are $7 for adults and $5 for children under 12.
For more information about Parents In Toto, contact 724-473-0990 or info@parentsintoto.org.

Every year thousands of people, often with no warning, lose their homes, their possessions and their livelihoods. Every day they are faced with a battle for survival.
ShelterBox, a partner project with Rotary International , is dedicated to providing emergency shelter and vital supplies to support communities in the United States and around the world overwhelmed by disaster and humanitarian crisis.
Since ShelterBox began in 2000, we have responded to earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, tsunamis, hurricanes, landslides, typhoons and conflict, delivering emergency humanitarian aid to communities in over 90 countries.
The 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the 2010 Haiti earthquake, the Syria crisis, tornadoes in Oklahoma, and the biggest storm to ever make landfall – Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines are some of the disasters to which we have responded.  We have also helped many thousands of people displaced by disasters that are not featured in the media. Simply put, anywhere there is a major disaster in the world, we will help.
Our vision
A world in which all people displaced by disasters and humanitarian crises are rapidly provided with emergency shelter and vital aid, which will help rebuild their communities and lives
Our mission
To rapidly provide emergency shelter, warmth and dignity to stabilize, protect and support communities overwhelmed by disaster and humanitarian crisis.
If you would like information on a program about ShelterBox or wish to make a contribution, please contact our club’s ShelterBox Ambassador, Tom Grant, at 724-389-7839 or tnelsong@gmail.com.

The Zelienople Rotary Club is recruiting families in the Seneca Valley School District area to host a student from another country during the 2014-15 school year in the Rotary Youth Exchange program.

 

What is the Rotary Youth Exchange Program?

The Rotary Youth Exchange program offers high school students from the U.S. and other countries the opportunity to live and study in another country during a school year. The program’s objective is to foster world peace, international understanding and good will by extending international communication at the personal level through the exchange of students of high school age. It is our hope that these young people will be able to observe, first hand, the problems and accomplishments of other countries by living with and meeting people of cultures, creeds and colors other than their own.

 

How are Host Families a Part of the Rotary Youth Exchange Program?

Seneca Valley School District area families are needed to host an in-bound foreign student for all or part of a school year. Many Rotary Clubs have found it good to have the in-bound student live with 2-3 families during the school year so the student gets to enjoy a variety of experiences, several families get to enjoy that student and no one family is over-burdened. The Zelienople Rotary Club will be responsible for getting approval from the school district for the student’s enrollment. The club also provides the student with a monthly allowance.

 

All families—even those without children—are encouraged to apply to be hosts. Any reputable family in our community is eligible to host a Rotary exchange student. For more information on how to become a host family, see the Zelienople Rotary contact information below.
