The District Community Service Committee encourages every club to be involved in one or more community service projects. Rotary clubs are making an impact in communities around the world. Please send in your club's service project information to Eric Lindsay at to be featured in the District Newsletter. 

Below is an example of some of the outstanding Service Projects in District 6780: 

Tullahoma Sunrise - Blue Monarch Mission 

 Blue Monarch's Mission is to provide a long term residential, therapeutic Christian community for women and their children to break adverse cycles and rebuild their families. 


Maryville-Alcoa and the Music & Technology Rotary Club of Blount County Food for Kids service project

The Maryville-Alcoa club and the Music & Tech Satellite Clubs partnered together to serve over 500 children in 4 elementary schools to pack food for the Second Harvest Backpack Food for Kids program. Teachers identify children who they think are at a risk for being hungry over the weekend, and put the bagged food in their backpack. Second Harvest delivers pallets of food to the Rotary club, then members meet together to unpack the pallets and pack the bags, place in totes, then deliver twice a month to the designated schools. If you would like to sponsor a school, please contact Sam Compton at Second Harvest, 1-865-243-8221. You may also contact Jennifer LaRue for more information on how the Maryville clubs run their Food for Kids program.
