Service Projects

 

Polio Eradication

Today, Rotary’s number-one priority is Polio Eradication.. We have made a lot of progress towards the eradication of polio over the last few years, but there is still work to be done. Please join our efforts to help put an end to Polio around the world.

 


Dictionary for all 3rd Graders

One of the first service projects was to provide standard dictionaries and other reference works in the classrooms of the local schools. Recently, the club has revived that project by joining forces with other area Rotary Clubs to distribute dictionaries to all third graders in Randolph County.

 

 

 


 

Stop Hunger Now

The goal of Stop Hunger Now (SHN) is to end hunger on planet earth in our lifetime. Through SHN’s Operation Sharehouse, healthy meals (in dry form) are prepared by volunteers and shipped to places with great human need – places such as Haiti and El Salvador. To ensure that the meals reach their destination, the sites are monitored with photographs at each step along the way.


Asheboro, Liberty, MidState, Randolph and Troy Rotary clubs join together for an Operation Sharehouse meal preparation day each year to support this much needed cause.

BackPack Pals

Each week our clubs donates a back pack to the BackPack Pals Program in honor of that week's speaker.

 

AHS Interact Club decided to put together back packs for the long Easter weekend, to ensure these kids had enough food to last the weekend.  They have estimated the food donations to be @ $720 and with the cash donations of $320, that's a grand total of $1,040.  What an awesome job!

 

A special thank you to all those who contributed food & money for this project.

 

Crippled Children's Clinic

Over this long period of time, the club paid the expenses of the Clinic, covering the cost of X-rays, braces, casts, corrective appliances, special shoes and medicines.
