Community Service 

Community service is one of the Avenues of Service which encourages Rotarians to offer service to their communities.  Every Rotary club and every Rotarian assumes a responsibility to find ways to improve the quality of life for those in their communities and to serve the public interest.
Rotary always benefits two people.  The child who is sick, who is hungry, who is thirsty, who has no clothes.  No shelter, no education, no future, no hope…that child is beneficiary of Rotary’s outreach.  That child is Rotary’s business.  But another benefit comes to the Rotarian-the one actually performing the service.  That person grows and fulfills the real reason for his or her existence, which is to serve others.
