Current Charity Events
Here are the current groups that we actively planning service for.
 
  • Mile of Quarters Fund Raiser (August 18th from 10am to 2pm):  https://cedarparkrotary.org/Stories/mile-of-quarters-fundraiser
    • We are meeting on Fridays from 4-5 pm to continue our planning efforts on our first fund raiser of the new year.  The fund raiser will be to support Hill Country Ministries Food Panty & Clothes Resource Center and scholarships for our local youth educational programs.  We need YOU and YOUR participation in the planning and execution of this event.  While there will be many jobs available on the day of the event, there are even more available for the preparation.  I urge you to attend these meetings and be part of the planning process.
Candlelight Ranch provides therapeutic and educational nature-based experiences to enrich the lives of at-risk youth, children with disabilities and their families. Save the dates of 10/27 and 10/28.  The Ranch will be training those volunteers that want to help with the zip lines that they use year-round as a component of their activities.  Please mark the date on your calendars as there is a 2.5-hour training BOTH days that will qualify you to help at the Ranch the entire year.  We will combine our service on the zip lines with other property services once the weather gets cooler.  They don’t want to lose any Rotarians to heat stroke working in temps of 100+ of the summer.
 
  • Clothes Closet For Homeless Men of Austin (Group within Front Steps) and are affiliated with the Austin Resource Center for the homeless.
    • This group provides clothes to our homeless male community.  The clothes need to be in good shape, no paint or spaghetti stains etc.).  The group delivers clothes 2 days a week and have served 23,000 homeless men in our community with clothes to help them get a step up on finding a job and dressing to get back into the workforce.
    • Male Rotarians look in your closets.  What work clothes don’t you wear anymore?  Do you have old sports coats that no longer fit?  What about dress shoes that you find have dust on them? 
    • Female Rotarians look in your partner’s closet.  What work clothes do you hate for your partner to put on?  Are there sports coats that your partner thinks will fit someday but you know differently?
    • Do you have the time to help serve on Monday mornings from 7:30-10:30 am?
We will be getting a barrel of some sort to collect these clothes and shoes at meetings.  Let’s start NOW!

Rotary's Areas of Focus

For more than 100 years, Rotarians have joined together from all continents, cultures, and industries to take action in our communities and around the world.  With a commitment to achieving lasting change, Rotarians work together to empower youth, enhance health, promote peace, and most importantly, advance the community.  While Rotarians can serve in countless ways, Rotary has focused it efforts in six areas, which reflect some of the most critical and widespread humanitarian needs:

  • Peace and conflict prevention/resolution
  • Disease prevention and treatment
  • Water and sanitation
  • Maternal and child health
  • Basic education and literacy
  • Economic and community development
To learn more about Rotary and its work in these six area, browse this website and/or visit the Rotary International website.
