We participate in or host community service events on a monthly basis. To learn more about this month's event, please visit our Facebook.
HOW ARE WE HELPING OUR COMMUNITY? Annapolis has many great opportunities to be active in our community. As a club we partner with local organizations and various projects to give back to a place we hold so dear. Because we are a young and vital group, we look to volunteer our time and physical abilities, such as the following:
COMMUNITY FUNDRAISING Rotaract partners with community organizations raising funds for their program needs. In June 2011, our club held our first annual "Rock the Dock" event with proceeds benefiting selected organizations. This has become our major community fundraising event where we organize a happy hour environment with live music, food and beverages, raffle games, and other fun activities. Our 2018 Rock the Dock was our largest turn-out today! With a sold out event, we raised a total of $12,031 for Gigi's Playhouse, Annapolis.
Each holiday season, we partner with Anne Arundel County CASA, Inc. to make a difference in the lives of children in foster care. With funds we've raised through the Annapolis Rotaract Foundation, we are able to bring holiday joy to children who would not otherwise receive gifts.
ADOPT-A-HIGHWAY Annapolis Rotaract Club periodically cleans a two mile stretch of Generals Highway beautifying and keeping the roadway free of litter.
ANNUAL ROTARY CRAB FEAST Annapolis Rotaract members are happy to volunteer at the Annapolis Rotary Club's Annual Crab Feast, the Largest in the World. We help serve crabs and beer, set-up, break down, as well as raise funds for local charities through
HANDS-ON PROJECTS We have assisted the Wellness House in landscaping their center to provide a vibrant outside setting for their patients. Rotaract also volunteered time and effort landscaping an Anne Arundel Co. library branch when budget cuts were made for grounds keeping.
