SPOTLIGHT
The Help Our Kids matching grant is a joint venture between the three Rotary Clubs in State College and the State College Area School District. The project provides financial assistance to school-aged children residing in the district during the 2013-14 and 2014-15 school years.

Each club contributed $1,500 to match the $4,500 provided by Rotary District 7360 for a total of $9,000. The money is used to meet the needs of students by paying for items of necessity, field trips, admissions fees for camps and activities, prom and graduation clothing and graduation requirements. The Evening Rotary Club of State College administers the grant.

Welcome to the State College Rotary Club’s website. Throughout the year this club is involved in many community, as well as international projects and activities that showcase our philosophy “service above self”. One of these activities is the “take-out meal project” which raises funds for a number of local organizations. Another project is our work with CVIM on the Battle of the Minds dinner, auction, and trivia game that raises thousands of dollars for the clinic that serves the uninsured in Centre County.

Another important focus throughout the year is our work with our youth. Our Club sponsors and is the advisor for an Interact Club at State College High School. In 2014, the State College Interact Club received a Rotary Presidential Citation for their work with numerous service projects. We also team with the other State College Rotary Clubs to distribute dictionaries to all third graders in the State College and Penns Valley School Districts. Our Club sponsors both an outbound as well as an inbound exchange student. Last year, our inbound student was from Jakarta, Indonesia, and our outbound student spent the year in Ecuador. Our Rotary Club constructed a water tower in Rwanda that enabled the school children to have fresh water for themselves and their gardens.

Some of our fun activities included attending a Spikes game, sampling various spirits at a local winery, touring AccuWeather, attending a musical at Eisenhower Auditorium, and visiting Centre Furnace Mansion. If you are interested in finding out more information about this exciting and worthwhile organization, please join us at one of our Tuesday evening meetings at the Nittany Lion Inn.
