Service Above Self!

The Early Years[edit]

The Rotary Club of Altamonte Springs is a member of Rotary International. District 6980 is composed of clubs in the five counties of Central Florida. The Altamonte Springs club was chartered on December 14, 1978. The xx club sponsored the Altamonte Springs.

Societal Contributions[edit]

The Altamonte Springs Rotary Club engages in several local community projects throughout the year. Here’s just some of the projects and activities our club undertakes to improve life in our community.

Community Service[edit]

  • Wekiva River Clean-up
  • Book Donations to Lake Orienta Elementary School Library
  • Holiday Food Drive
  • Fundraising for Local Charities
  • Hands on Projects
  • Teaching Toolbox
  • Relay for Life

International Service[edit]

The Altamonte Springs Rotary Club supports International Service by sponsoring projects in other countries and seeking out international project partners to support projects in their own communities. And when the opportunity arises, you’ll find our Rotarians personally volunteering at an international project site.

Youth Services[edit]

The Altamonte Springs Rotary Club maintains a strong connection to youth and young adults. Through our New Generations Services, our club sponsors and supports local youth service clubs and offers career development and mentoring programs. Here’s just some of the programs we support:

  • Lake Brantley High Interact Club
  • Earlyact
  • Rotary Youth Exchange
  • Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA)
  • Teaching Toolbox is our club’s Centennial Community Project.
    • Certain requirements were made by Rotary International to officially become a Centennial Project such as fulfilling a clearly identifiable community need and providing a solution that has measurable results.
    • Each year there are more and more students in our classrooms. There is less money per student available for new schools, teachers and supplies, however, the laundry list of required/requested supplies grow each year. At the start of each year, a list of these required supplies is given to each child but some cannot afford even the simplest of items. Researches show that the average teacher spends $500 to $1000 of their own money each year to compensate for missing items. The Teaching Toolbox has been one small contribution to our community to help solve one of our current school system’s dilemmas.
    • The school we chose to reach out to is right in our back yard at Lake Orienta Elementary. Built from the ground up by our club, The Toolbox is a self-contained, climate controlled storage that remains stocked with supplies necessary for the teachers to function daily without the worries of shortages.
