Our "Provisions for Persons Who are Homeless" Project
Move in and backpack kits for people experiencing homelessness in our community.
The Rotary Club of Wheat Ridge received a matching grant from Rotary District 5450 to create move-in kits and backpack kits for persons experiencing homelessness. The project was approved to assist the City of Wheat Ridge's Homeless Navigator provide much-needed supplies and essentials to individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Wheat Ridge, Golden, and Edgewater.
The move-in kits consist of items an individual or family need to establish themselves when housing is found. The backpack kits contain hygiene items, first aid kits, socks, gloves, and a cap. Rotary members assembled the kits in June and delivered them to WRPD for distribution by the WRPD Crime Prevention Team and the Homeless Navigator.

Ways you can help Rotary and the community
BECOME A MEMBER
Rotarians are professional men and women who work as volunteers to improve the quality of life in their home and world community. Club membership represents a cross-section of local business and professional leaders. The world’s Rotary clubs meet weekly and are non-political, non-religious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.
Be the inspiration!
From the earliest days of the organization, Rotarians were concerned with promoting high ethical standards in their professional lives. One of the world’s most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics was created by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor and adopted by Rotary in 1943. The Four-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways.
