(a few of our most recent & popular)
JOSH THE OTTER
Fall 2016 & Spring 2017
Rotary Club of Newtown Square donated books, CD's, and other materials to promote water-safety and literacy during a fun visit and read-along at The Walden School. "Josh The Otter" made a special appearance to the delight of all of the students! So much dancing and fun was had during our visit. Special thanks to Newtown Square Rotarian Victoria Vannes and the other dedicated educators and staff, as well as fellow Rotarians from Media and Paoli-Malver-Berweyn. "Josh" will gladly return by popular demand!
LOAVES AND FISHES
Winter 2016 - 2017
Our club members and youth volunteers had the honor of helping a local organization stock and box grocery items donated to a food pantry for families in need. We were able to pack about 100 boxes within 2hours, which equals a week's worth of groceries for 100 local families in need. During another visit we were able to pack around 200 boxes! Join us next time so we can break our record. It's always a pleasure to give a helping hand to a worthy cause and vital organization!
RISE AGAINST HUNGER
Newtown Square Rotary will join other area Rotary clubs to volunteer and give towards "Rise Against Hunger"-formerly Stop Hunger Now, with their worldwide packaged meal campaign that supports children and vulnerable families in need of nourishment & additional services to aid their journey out of poverty. From droughts to floods, and conflict zones, food is often the most immediate need. Since 1998, Rise Against Hunger has packed over 309Million meals and served over 74 countries. Come Help Us Make an Impact!
ANNUAL CHRISTMAS GIVING
Winter Holiday Seasons
Every year our club selects a number of local families experiencing crisis or sudden personal setbacks that would make enjoying the holidays extremely challenging if not impossible. We inquire through other local organizations, schools, and places of worship to identify households in need; then deliver gifts, food, and other assistance as goodwill to our neighbors.
COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Each Year (End of HS Senior Year)
It has been our club's tradition to award selected high school senior(s) scholarships for their freshman year in college based on need and/or merit. They must live or attend high school in the Marple Newtown District, Newtown Square, or Edgmont.
HELP US FIGHT ALZHEIMER'S, END MALARIA, AND END POLIO NOW!
Rotary members have spent over 30 years fighting polio around the globe, with the help of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation it's now almost fully eradicated. We are also dedicated to a malaria-free world through treatment and prevention. Our members use their extensive experience and leadership to fight Alzheimer’s disease and dementia through education and collaboration as well.
