Although the world is in a state of crisis right now it is still possible to carry on the Rotary tradition of helping where help is needed.
 
Our club is working with Kiva to help people grow their businesses and support their communities. So far our club has contributed 34 loans to various countries and for various purposes as you can see by these graphs. 
We invite everyone to visit Kiva and look at all the good that is being done across the globe. Once there you can read more about the type of  people requesting loans and about how we are supporting the world by helping these people.

Had the pleasure of delivering 25 hampers to a local elementary school with a Rotary buddy. This is part of the Feed the Kids campaign. The food bank needs donations of peanut butter and canned goods. Even better a cash donation. Some of these families have been going without. Nice to help out!

Tonight we welcomed our club's first exchange student, Davina Cater, and her family. A 15-year old student from Promontory, Davina is excited to be participating in a short-term exchange this summer. She is hoping to be sent to France, and return from France with her French host-sister. As Davina's sponsoring club, we look forward to getting to know both girls better.

Great fun was had at our Dec. 2 meeting. There was much love being felt and shared as members of the Chilliwack AFTER HOURS Rotary club wrote messages of thanks to members of the Canadian Armed Forces who will be away from their families during the holiday season. You can see from the smiles on our members faces that these cards of kindness had as much affect on our members as we hope they will have on the recipients.

Tis the season to share love and happiness with those in need.

The spirit of the season was upon us at our December 2nd club meeting. We invited all to join us in an evening of festivities and community service as we prepared gift bags for Ruth and Naomi's this Christmas. You can see by all the smiles that this evening of giving back brought a lot of good feelings to our hearts.

Thank you to all who made donations of items and/or cash donations.

Educating in a pandemic and beyond

Facing the challenges of COVID-19, Rotary clubs and partner organizations are finding new ways to support access to education.

Supporting the environment becomes a new area of focus

The Rotary Foundation Trustees and RI Board of Directors have added a new area of focus: supporting the environment.

Small scholarships help Illinois adults build their careers

Small scholarships help adults return to school and trade a job for a career - In a seemingly affluent Chicago suburb, poverty stops many adult students from affording classes to advance their skillsets. Local Rotary clubs are helping pay for school.

Nature & Nurture

With help from a Rotary Foundation global grant, a group of women in rural Costa Rica are using ecotourism to enrich their families' futures.
