Local and International Service
The Rotary Club of Las Vegas West is dedicated to serving the Las Vegas area. We have several avenues of service that we participate in, below are just a few.
In accordance with our mission, we have adopted at-risk schools in the Las Vegas Valley. Club members provide mentoring, books, computers, clothing, food, shoes and scholarship opportunities for both students and teachers. Click here to read more about our support for education.
Our club participates in many other worthy community service activities, including the Santa Clothes Project that buys clothing and other items for needy children at Christmas.
Several times a year, Las Vegas West Rotarians don their jeans and gloves to help pick up trash in the beautiful Red Rock Canyon.
Our members play active roles building homes for the needy in Mexico and other global projects of Rotary International. Members traveled to Latin America to aid in cleft-palate surgeries and we anticipate doing so again this year as part of our Rotary district’s international aid project.
The Rotary Club of Las Vegas West partnered with the Rotary Club of Francistown in the southern African nation of Botswana to raise funds to buy a new mini-bus for the Motse wa Tsholofelo day-care center and pre-school for AIDS children in that country. Our club also donated to help transport books to the Great Lakes College in Uganda.
