For more than a decade, members of Rotary District 7870 (New Hampshire, Vermont, USA) have been helping residents of Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. The district’s service projects have ranged from making upgrades to the local nonprofit radio station, to providing laptops for students, to delivering materials for traditional quilts. District Rotarians have also partnered with South Dakota Rotary clubs to fund a makerspace for native artists.

Springfield residents have shown amazing support for the plastic film recycling program that started in February of this year.  The Springfield Rotary Club signed on to the Trex Community Recycling Challenge, to collect and recycle soft plastic used by Trex to manufacture building materials such as decking.  Communities that collect 500 pounds of film plastic within a six-month period are awarded a bench.

Trex, a company that makes outdoor items from recycled materials, first rolled out its recycling challenge to schools and communities in 2006. The initiative gives communities a six-month period to collect 500 pounds (or more) of plastic bags and film — also known as polyethylene films or plastic that can be stretched — and if that goal is met, the community receives an earth-friendly Trex bench, according to the company.
 
Springfield Rotarians have until the end of June to secure their free bench made from recycled materials.
 
The Springfield Rotary Club held a very successful "Stuff a Truck" event on November 19, 2022 in the Springfield Plaza to benefit the Springfield Family Center.
