We  Our Community!

We are active in our community through many different projects.
Below are some of the activities we are involved in.

Marion-Polk Food Share

South Salem joins with other area clubs to raise funds and collect food donations for the Marion-Polk Food share. Rotarians are committed to eliminating hunger from our community! We volunteer quarterly with Marion-Polk Food Share by helping out in the Warehouse repackaging or sorting donations.

South Salem Rotarians like to volunteer on projects that beautify our community. Whether pulling weeds & putting down fresh bark dust in Wendy Kroger Park or planting trees with the City of Salem, you’ll find club members with their sleeves rolled up and using their hands to make Salem a better place to live & work.

Dictionary Project

Literacy in our community is a core Rotary value and Salem area Rotarians demonstrate this commitment by joining together to donate dictionaries to ever 3rd grader in the Salem-Keizer School District.
