What is EarlyAct?
EarlyAct is the elementary school level of the Rotary organization. Centered around the concept of "Service Above Self," EarlyAct Club members engage in service activities that affect their school community, local community, people across the US, and even others around the world. Each activity is supported through various fundraisers organized by the club.
In recent school years, EarlyAct has engaged in a variety of activities, such as:
- Sponsoring the Hopewell Holiday Shop, with the proceeds benefitting Oxford Neighborhood Services
- Fundraising and otherwise supportting the "Swags for Veterans" program, partnering with the sponsoring business, Philips Florist of Oxford
- Facilitating letter writing for active, injured, and retired military troops
- Creating paracord bracelets for active military personnel around the world
- Adopting animals through the World Wildlife Fund
- Organizing a children's toy/craft supply drive for donation to local area hospitals
