Local Community Service

Craig Hospital
Denver Mile High Rotary hosts quarterly meals for Craig Hospital patients and their families.  This project gives families a chance to connect with community members and take a break from the intensive rehab process and hospital cafeteria food. 
Reading for Peace
Denver Mile High Rotary members read to a small group of elementary school students around the themes of violence prevention, peace-making, relationship building and and problem solving. This project is a partnership with The Conflict Center, Career Education Early College and Valdez Elementary. 
Bridge Hope
Club members created gift baskets for people who are victims of sex trafficking. Right now, the club is working on a long-term partnership with the organization that will further positively impact those who need help. 
Denver Kids and Brain Wise
 Brain Wise is a K-12 curriculum that teaches young people about their own emotions and how their brain works.  The tools the students learn can help them understand how to make positive decisions and solve problems by understanding themselves. Denver Mile High Rotary has partnered with Denver Kids and offers training to faculty and staff on the curriculum. Members of the Club act as mentors and support to the youth in the program. This project was made possible through a grant and partnership with;  Club 31, Denver SE Rotary, and Castle Pines Rotary.
Metro Caring
Denver Mile High Rotary will be supporting Metro Caring in funding and constructing garden beds which will be used to grow food for Metro Caring. These garden beds will be used as educational tools to help people learn how to grow their own food. Denver Mile High Rotary has partnered with Cherry Creek Rotary for this project.
