Rotary Global Rewards
Rotary Global Rewards, our member benefits program, offers discounts on products and services from local and global merchants, along with opportunities to give back to Rotary. 

Over 33,000 members have signed in to use Rotary Global Rewards. To raise awareness of this program, you can:
  1. Recommend Rotary Global Rewards to all club members. They can visit from a computer or download the Rotary Club Locator App to use the program on mobile devices.
  2. Post a "Rewards" link to on your club and district websites. This gives members easier access to Rotary Global Rewards.
  3. Encourage club members to post offers on Rotary Global Rewards. 
  4. Suggest that club members help the program grow in their communities by asking local merchants to post offers. 
You can find instructional videos, how-to-guides, and promotional materials on the Rotary Global Rewards page of My Rotary.  If you have any questions about the program, write to 
Food and Fund Drive
Eagan Kick-Start Rotary would like to welcome Jason Viana of The Open Door with contributions of food, household supplies, and gift cards to local markets.
Jason will speak to the club at the August 17 meeting.
The top five needed items are:
* Peanut butter
* Canned tuna or chicken
* 16-48 oz bottles of vegetable oil
* 64 oz bottles of 100% fruit juice
* Toilet paper
In addition, gift cards to Cub, Target, Sam's Club or other local food markets are always welcome.
Bring your donations to the 8/10 or 8/17 meetings where they will be bundled for The Open Door.
Supplies for Uganda
Are you storing unused sewing and knitting machines, material, yarn and supplies….they are needed in Uganda!!
The Rotary Club of Maple Grove is collecting sewing machines + supplies (fabric, thread, needles, scissors, etc.), and knitting machines + supplies (yarn, knitting needles, crochet hooks, etc.)  to create a sewing center in Uganda near one of the largest refugee camps in the world. They are also accepting bed linens and gardening tools. 
The sewing center project will impact the lives of women and their children who arrive in Uganda as economic, political and war refugees.  These refugees have no way of supporting themselves or make a living, and these families ending up homeless and hungry on the streets Kampala and the surrounding area. 
These items will be used in a sewing cooperative and each machine donated will help a family become financially independent.  Many women have been victims of wartime sexual violence and because of a lack of skills, tools and/or supplies, they are trapped in the sex trade.  Learning to sew and knit can liberate them.
Sewing and knitting equipment and supplies will be accepted until September 17, 2017 as the 40’ container will leave Minnesota for Uganda in early October.  In December, several people from Minnesota will be traveling to Uganda to teach people how to sew and knit.
For pick up, please contact Judy Johnson,,  612-296-6658
