Do you want to do more good in the world but can’t think how you can have an impact? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Welcome! 

Sometimes we all get caught up in the squirrel cage of life and wonder if we are making a difference in the world. Here is the answer to that question if you are a West Jordan Rotary Club member. Last year this is what the club  accomplished:

  • We have provided 40 sanitation kits to keep young women in schools in third-world countries.  
  • We provided over 203 school items, 50 pairs of various sizes of underwear, and 50 sanitation kits for kids housed at the South Valley Sanctuary, a shelter for children of domestic violence. 
  • We have provided 48 hygiene kits to military refugees who fled their country because these refugees supported the U.S.war against terrorism in Afghanistan. 
  • We have supported an exchange student from Italy to the tune of $100 a month for living expenses. 
  • We have contributed more than $3,000 as a club to TRF in the first four months of the Rotary year. This money may dig 30 water wells or restore sight to 40 children who have avoidable blindness, install more than 150 solar lights on the Navajo reservation in Arizona, or feed 3,211 malnour­ished children for a day.
  • Sent six high school students to RYLA to learn skills to become the world’s future leaders. 
  • We have purchased and are in the process of distributing 51 wheelchairs to children and young adults in Columbia, some of whom have been waiting for mobility for two or more years. 
  • We provided a Wheelchair for Cody, a resident with special needs.
  • We supported our local Scout Troop with a potato fundraiser, picking up hundreds of pounds of potatoes, bagging them, and helping them sell them. 
  • We repaired the Field of Dreams so children with special needs could play baseball this season. 
  • We are securing funding to purchase and install seven park benches along the Jordan River Parkway. 
  •  We are working to secure funding to pay the registration fees for disabled children who wish to participate in SLC County’s league play on the Field of Dreams built by the West Jordan Rotary Club. 
  • We have raised more than $6,000 to help defray the burial costs of a young family in West Jordan who lost their young child in a terrible, tragic accident. 
  •  We have honored two students each month from the three local high schools in our boundaries naming each “Student of the Month.” At the end of the school year, we will award 6 of these students a $1000 scholarship to attend a school of their choice. 
  • After a fire, we helped renovate the community center in Halchita, Utah, so the Navajo nation could have a center to unite its citizens. 
  • We created toys for children to play with in third-world countries. 
  •  We purchased and distributed more than 1700 school dictionaries and distributed them to all third-grade classes room in the southwest quadrant of the Salt Lake Valley. 

… and the list goes on 

If it is TUESDAY, it’s Rotary!
