Fort Worth South Rotary Club's Service

We identify community needs, and spend a significant amount of our resources here, in Ft. Worth.   However, by leveraging our resources, our club is able to support solutions locally, and overseas.  Naturally, this is why the Club relies heavily on its members and community support to achieve its goals.  New members bring new energy, resources, and generally help the Club to achieve much more.  Whether a member is participating in a Club project, creates a project that the Club/Board agrees to support, or the Club (as a whole) supports The Rotary Foundation efforts, there are many ways that we can Serve the Community.
