What we support

Our club was organized so that we would not do projects, or fundraisers that require us to organize events or sell tickets. However, we felt that it would be a good idea to have some things that we particularly support. By reading through these you will know what we are about, and what we do. We also chose some causes because you can find these in almost every location.
 

Food banks

In 2014-15, we found out that most clubs in the district support a food bank at one time or another. Every club has at least one project, but we could do this on our own on behalf of the D7040 Passport Rotary Club. You can find pictures on our district website https://portal.clubrunner.ca/50214/Page/hunger-and-food-insecurity. Here are some websites that you can use for information.
 
 
 
The Cornwall Rotarians were challenged by the Kinsmen in the Agape Centre “one bag challenge.” http://www.cornwallseawaynews.com/news/local/2017/8/3/kinsmen-carry-through-one-bag-challenge.html. We followed through with donations collected at charter night.

Youth Now farm program

Building Community Through Connection to the Land
The YOUTH NOW FARM is an innovative farming project launched in 2017. It brings together key agricultural activities with youth engagement, youth skills development, mentorship and employment opportunities. This farming project will increase food production for Ottawa residents, raise awareness of and access to locally grown food, support the positive development of marginalized youth, and benefit the community and agriculture industry through youth engagement and training. for more information go to http://www.youthnowfarm.ca/
 
 
 

Adopt-a-Street program

Show your civic pride by joining other volunteers who wish to achieve litter-free streets, sidewalks, parks, and waterfront spaces. Together, Adopt-A-Street volunteers create a positive milieu for everyone to enjoy. Volunteering is a healthy and rewarding activity!

The program is flexible - you can decide where and how often to pick up litter! Volunteers can participate for as long as they want, but typically, clean up efforts take place during the spring, summer, and fall months. It is a great experience for all ages and the program costs very little to administer.

We would do this as individuals, but in the name of the D7040 Passport Rotary Club.
 
This program does not seem to be in Kingston or Petawawa however.
