Community Service

Community Service is the opportunity Rotary clubs have to implement club projects and activities that improve life in the local community.
Golden Valley Rotarians are dedicated to serving community members.
  • We volunteer hundreds of hours stocking the local food shelf, reading to children, packaging meals and cleaning up local highways.
  • We donate thousands of dollars each year to purchase hats and mittens, school safety patrol equipment and support for many other service organizations.
  • And we support college-bound students with thousands of dollars in scholarships each year.
