The Rotary Club of Superstition Mountain is participating in the Arizona Rotary District 5495 Community Service Project during National Volunteer Week, April 18-24.
This year the project will be painting hand railings at Apache Junction High School and doing some work at the Boys and Girls Club.
Rotary is partnering with other service organizations and individuals — membership is not required — to inspire volunteers around the world to participate in International Week of Service.
Contact our local club president, Harvey Clark, at email@example.com.
Each year, Rotary members around the world log 16 million volunteer hours on projects on an international scale and in their own back yards.
Organizations participating include: Rotary International, Lions Clubs International, Optimist International, Junior Chamber International, Kiwanis International, Moose International, Soroptimist, Y’s Men International and more.
National Volunteer Week is an opportunity to recognize the impact of volunteer service and the power of volunteers to tackle society’s greatest challenges, to build stronger communities and be a force that transforms the world. Each year, we shine a light on the people and causes that inspire us to serve, recognizing and thanking volunteers who lend their time, talent and voice to make a difference in their communities.
National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 and has grown exponentially each year, with thousands of volunteer projects and special events scheduled throughout the week. Today, as people strive to lead lives that reflect their values, the expression of civic life has evolved. Whether online, at the office, or the local food bank; whether with a vote, a voice, or a wallet – doing good comes in many forms, and we recognize and celebrate them all.
Rotary International is a 501(c)3 organization with 1.2 million members in 200 countries and 35,000 clubs.
