Waynesville Rotary believes in "Service Above Self" and base our local and global services on that value. Locally, we provide scholarships for students at the community college and university levels, provide backpacks of food to children who otherwise wouldn't have something to eat on weekends, and provide construction and other projects through United Way Day of Caring and Habitat for Humanity. These are just a few of our community service initiatives.
