Scholarships

Each year, we award several academic 4-year and vocational 2-year college scholarships.

Feed The Future

The Wheat Ridge Rotary Club's Feed the Future service project, in collaboration with Community Table and Wheat Ridge Elementary Schools, provides supplemental food for children who are in need at participating schools in Wheat Ridge during the school year.

 

Each Friday, children take home a sack filled with food, including: breakfast, lunch, and snack items, along with fruit and vegetables to see them through the weekend when the safety net of the Free and Reduced Lunch program is not available. To be a part of this program, parents can register their children at their local school any time during the school year.

 

Contributions to fund this program are needed to maintain this needed and necessary service.

Operation Warm

We provide warm winter coats for school aged children.
