Community Involvement

Most Rotarians join Rotary to give back to their communities. Rotary clubs around the world dedicate thousands of volunteer hours to service projects, including everything from serving food at local shelters to cleaning up highways. The St. Paul Sunrise Rotary Club is honored to participate in these efforts.

Throughout the year, Club Members regularly prepare and serve food at a local women's program, are involved with Gordon Parks High School, ring bells for the Salvation Army, and much more.

If you have any suggestions for service opportunities, please contact the Service Chair by clicking on the Chair's name under "Officers" on the left side of the Home Page.
