The Rotary Club of Wahroonga’s Community Service team is concerned about:
 
  • a greener environment;
  • embracing increasing diversity;
  • staying healthy as we grow older; and
  • looking after those in need.
With these priorities in mind, focus areas have been chosen to guide the community service activity of the Rotary Club of Wahroonga.
 
The focus area:
 
  • ‘Greening Spaces’ recognises that individual citizens can do much to improve the environment and not rely entirely on local councils;
  • ‘Diversity Connections’ supports the call by Rotary International to increase our connections with the diverse communities within our community, support inclusion and build collaborative relationships with the world;
  • ‘Youthful Ageing’ focuses on staying healthy at all ages as we grow older;
  • ‘Community Connections’ builds on the work that has been done by Hornsby Connect and now Ku-ring-gai Connect and seeks to expand this activity to other areas or crisis management, building connections between community groups ; and
  • ‘Community Caring Awards’ will recognise individuals and organisations who continue to care and support our community, particularly recognising those who have worked so hard during these current, unprecedented times.

We always try to make our fundraising activities, events that match our values. Therefore, they are often about partnering with community, having fun, being inclusive and diverse and building connections. This is represented in our current fundraiser the Celebration of World Mental Health Day!!! We have called for our community to make sock puppets that represent those in their own Essential Worker community who went to work while others were not able to. They could be mothers, fathers, posties, chemists, nurses, doctors, scientists, politicians, carers, supermarket workers, lorry drivers. The list is endless and we know there are way too many people working extra hard without anyone noticing. See more ideas about the kind of sock puppets to make and more about the project here
 
So, let us know about them!
 
Make a sock puppet and raise some funds so we can partner with organisations who can help to bring our wonderful community together again. Find out more here
