History Logs

Project Description

Country: United States + Germany

Location: New York, Hamburg, Berlin

Total Budget: $2,000

Areas of Focus: Peace and conflict prevention/resolution, Water and sanitation

Activity Type: Water: Supply/Access

Summary: 2,500+ hygiene kits provided to homeless families living in New York City, Hamburg and Berlin.

The Rotary E-Club of Wall Street is a diverse club with more than 28 members across 13 major cities in the world. From our members' experience, homeless is a recurring issue in many of the urban cities we live in. Our Rotarians are determined to alleviate some of the day-to-day struggles facing homeless families. This past year, many of us independently volunteered for this cause, but we look to coming together through a common community service project complimenting our global reach as Rotarians of D7230.

Together, we aim to distribute hygiene kits (including shampoo, soap, etc.) in three major cities with our membership present: New York, Hamburg and Berlin. To ensure fair distribution of these kits, we will partner with established nonprofit organizations serving these populations.

Our club commits to raising at least $1,000 USD in donations from our members and individual contributions from their networks. The project funds will be used for purchasing supplies (travel size containers, baggies, Rotary sticker labels, etc.) in bulk to assemble together and bring to homeless organizations.

Prospective partner organizations include:

New York - Coalition for the Homeless

Berlin - Stadtmission Berlin

Hamburg - CaFeé mit Herz
