Our community faces unprecedented challenges due to the economic fallout related to the COVID-19 public health crisis, including the increased demand for food assistance.  Responding to that need, the Rotary Club of Schaumburg A.M. donated $2,000 to the Schaumburg Township Food Pantry to meet the immediate need for help.  This donation in part was made possible by a Rotary District 6440 Foundation matching grant.
Schaumburg A.M. Rotary Club president Rev. Jerry Hays stated that "As Rotarians we are committed to service, especially in times such as we are experiencing now. It is a priority for us to assist others in need and supporting the food pantry fits that priority."

How military background inspired five decades
of community service for Schaumburg veteran
When Pete Justen moved his young family to Schaumburg in August 1968, the 11 years of military experience he brought with him inspired a need to serve his adopted community.
Now at 83, Justen's service to Schaumburg and fellow veterans continues in a variety of ways.
Schaumburg AM Rotary invites local students pursuing vocational or trade careers and working toward an associate degree, diploma or certificate to apply for $1,500 scholarships.   Rotary encourages education and will grant 10 scholarships this spring to students living in Chicago’s north, northwest and many western suburbs.
This program is designed to provide scholarships to students demonstrating financial need who will be pursuing education/training beyond high school in a vocational or technical area.  It is not intended for students pursuing traditional four-year Bachelor’s degree programs.

Operation Warm Winter Coats
You can make a difference in your community by providing a colorful, high quality, new winter coat to a child in need.
A new winter coat offers an economically disadvantaged child -
  • physical & emotional warmth
  • confidence to socialize & succeed
  • hope for a brighter future
While a donation in any amount is appreciated, $20 will provide one warm winter coat for a child from a low income family struggling to make ends meet.
Your donation will be held in the Schaumburg A.M. Rotary account at Operation Warm for future coat purchase/donation.
Thank you for giving the gift of warmth, confidence and hope to kids in need!
