The Rotary Club of West Chester's large membership is engaged throughout the year in vocational, community and world service. Some major activities are: 

  • Organizing and hosting the popular, community-based West Chester Rotary Chili Cook-off each fall as a means to raise funds for local and international needy projects.
  • Annual Fruit sale to raise funds for a selected non-profit charitable organization.
  • Operation Warm Coats drive that provides West Chester Area School District Children in need with warm winter coats.
  • Rotary Readers program where dozens of club members read to area elementary school children twice a month throughout the school year. We end each school year by presenting the children with their first, brand-new dictionary.
  • Rotary Youth Exchange which brings foreign students to the area and sends two local high school students to foreign countries, each for a year, to build world peace and understanding.
  • Contribute generously to Rotary Foundation - eradicating polio worldwide and other worthwhile world service programs.  Click here for latest News Releases from Rotary International

  • Sponsor and organize the veterans and their young families that rode in the Welcome Home Veterans float in the Annual Greater West Chester Chamber's Old-Fashioned Christmas Parade
  • Support the Stockings for Soldiers holiday campaign through a collection of items, donations and sewn stockings
  • August Backpack Food Drive supporting the Chester County Food Bank
  • Provide volunteers for the annual Salvation Army Ringing of the Bells December
