We'd Love to Hear from You:

Our Quick Impacts (QI) committee is actively reaching out to talk with fellow Rotarians to:

  • Increase awareness and understanding of QI’s benefits and how you can participate;
  • Learn of your connection with community causes that might need volunteers and;
  • Hear ideas you have that might benefit this effort.

If you haven’t yet been contacted by one of us and would like to talk soon, please reach out here RCAQuickImpacts@gmail.com and we will get back to you.

Background:

Launched September 2020, seven QI service events were held September-December.

Objective: Expand our Club’s ability to directly address community needs and serve as a:

  • Catalyst for increased member[1] access to service opportunities that:
    • can be completed in a day or less and
    • provide opportunity for fellowship and family involvement.
  • Connector to community service opportunities that align with our missions.
  • Compounding effect to broaden and deepen our Club’s:
    • relationships with area community organizations’ and
    • impact with others on addressing community need.

Great way to introduce someone to Rotary and let them experience with us!


[1] “Member” here is being used in its broadest sense i.e. Rotary, Rotaract, and Interact.

Are you affiliated with a local community organization?

Let us know and we’d love to touch base with you about how Quick Impacts could align with some of their volunteer needs. 

Contact Carol at:  cgausz@blueheronassociates.com or 302-388-5301.

 

If you already know of a community need for which you’d like a small group of fellow Rotarians to help,

      Contact us at:  RCAQuickImpacts@gmail.com

             ... and we will help recruit a small group of other Rotarians to work with you. We will help create the sign-up link and connect it to Crablines and our Rotary Club website.
