Community Involvement

Every year Kishwaukee Rotary is involved in many things in the community! Here are just a few to spotlight!
 
Toys for Tots is something that we truly cherish every Christmas season! Our one and only Santa visits our club and collects financial donations and toys from each club member to then give to our local Salvation Army. In 2014 we collected over $1500 and tons on toys! Here is a photo from this years donation! 
 
                                                                    
 
Feed My Starving Children is a local event where we team up with other local Rotary clubs!
Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a Christian non-profit organization committed to feeding God's children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: volunteers hand-pack meals specially formulated for malnourished children, and we send them to partners around the world where they're used to operate orphanages, schools, clinics and feeding programs to break the cycle of poverty. FMSC food has reached more than 70 countries in our history.
                                               
 
Big Brothers Big Sisters of DeKalb County is an organization which we support through there annual Bowl For Kids Sake event! The club gets together for a good time and for a good cause! 
                                                         
 
Back to School Backpack Drive is another Salvation Army initiative in which we support through our Rotary. Every year our club members collect school supplies for children in the community and then give it to Salvation Army which supports over 500 children a year! 
                                                                     
Rotary Work Day is something new this year where we collaborate with the Sycamore Rotary Club and help clean up the parks in our community! Here are some of our club members hard at work!
