Partnership, joint effort, co-operation, collaboration; whatever name you use, helps beat the heart of Rotary.

Rotary Club of Sackville and Area has had a busy fall and winter.  With the help of a District Grant, PI puppy win and fundraising, the Club has been able to continue to tackle Hunger and Homelessness in our community and assist with the drive for new members.
On February 17th, Rotarians and Friends of Rotary joined the festivities of the Sackville Snow Days and walked in the Parade holding our new banner, getting the word out to the community.
A thank you from Millwood and Sackville High School for supporting and helping serve at their breakfast programs, which battles food insecurity and provides students with a healthy, nutritious start to their day.
In November, the Club sponsored and served at the Community Outreach Meal Event, feeding 185 people and also, contributed to the “Freedom Kitchen” Food Truck, which provides, each Monday, hot meals to the homeless.
Critical training (first aid, WHMIS - workplace hazardous material information system, NVCI – non violent crisis Intervention, ASSIST - applied suicide intervention skills) obtained for 14 new volunteers at the Sackville Area Warming Centre.  This allowed SAWC to be open more days and for longer hours.
Hunger and Homelessness remains one of our Club’s highest priorities.
