Community Service

Service defines Rotary's character; whether local or international, it promotes Rotary's appeal and visibility in the community and is the reason Rotary continues to grow.

Community service responds to the needs of a local community. Rotary clubs should determine top priorities for service projects by first learning about a community's needs and assets, and then developing a response that addresses them.

The chairman of the Community Service committee is responsible for all community service activities and supervises and coordinates the work of all sub-committees appointed on particular phases of community service.
The Community Service committee consists of the chairman of the community service committee and the chairmen of all sub-committees appointed on particular phases of community service.

Community Service Projects - RY 2020/21

Willing Hearts
Willing Hearts sustains itself with generous support from friends, volunteers, donors, sponsors, and just about anyone who believes in their cause. It operates a soup kitchen that prepares, cooks, and distributes about 5,000 daily meals to over 40 locations island-wide, 365 days a year. Beneficiaries include the elderly, the disabled, low-income families, children from single-parent families or otherwise poverty-stricken families, and migrant workers in Singapore.
 
Two Saturdays in a row (8th & 15th August) our Rotarians have been worked in the Soup Kitchen of this organization. Almost 100 hours of our job has been given for the food preparation for the needy communities of Singapore. The cash donations of $2,000 have been collected and delivered to the President of Willing Hearts, Mr Teh Eng Hua. These funds will be used to buy fruits and vegetables for low-income families.
Food From The Heart
Food from the Heart is an IPC-status food charity that feeds the needy in Singapore. Their food distribution programmes are run with a sustainable charity in mind. This means that they are committed to providing continued food security to their beneficiaries for as long as they need it.
 
Volunteers from our Rotary Club regularly participate in distributing FFTH food packs, vegetables, eggs and fruits to 59 households.
