Boardman Rotary uses the funds we earn through our two major fund raisers, the Boardman Rotary Oktoberfest and Pancake Breakfasts in the Park each year to financially support a number of community groups and non-profits.  Boardman Schools, Easter Seals, Habitat for Humanity, Boy Scouts of America, Beatitude House, Boardman Community Baseball, Salvation Army, and the YWCA are only a handful of organizations that we have been able to support.  
Local support is not always financial.  Rotarians have cooked and served meals at the Salvation Army, volunteered to help on Habitat for Humanity builds, delivered baskets of food to local families in need, and helped to size children with, and distribute winter coats.  One of our favorite activities is to pass out American flags to those attending the Memorial Day parade in Boardman.
Internationally, we have supported the building of wells, the distribution of books and computers, and have gifted wheelchairs to those in need.  Rotarians have traveled to Mexico, Guatemala, Dominica and El Salvador to participate in hearing, dental and vision mission trips as well as trips to help to paint, repair, and build orphanages. 
Each year, Boardman Rotary also financially supports a student in the Rotary Youth Exchange Program, giving an international high school junior or senior the opportunity to travel to the US, stay with a local host family, attend a local high school and learn about our culture for one year.  Each year, our club has the opportunity to welcome all of the exchange students assigned to our district to an overnighter at Camp Stambaugh soon after they arrive in the US.  We play lawn games, take them bowling, and have a campfire where we teach them to make an All-American favorite...s'mores.
