Welcome to the Rotary D5000 Days of Service landing page! 
Rotary Days of Service is an initiative of Rotary International President (2021-2022) Shekhar Mehta aimed at helping clubs around the world gather more attention to the good works we are already doing and enhancing our impact with a focus on cultivating and managing community partnerships.
Join your district leadership team and Rotary Days of Service Co-Chairs Mark Merriam and Kelly McDonald and help make D5000 a stand out district with RI for this presidential initiative.  We will be adding content to this page so please check back regularly for additional resources and support!
There are four simple steps to make sure your club is active in this initiative:
Step 1:  This is the easiest one ~ its the work we are already doing!​
Plan and carry out your service project or event in your community where you are already impacting. D5000 has identified a theme each quarter for club's to align the work you are already doing:
  • Basic Education and Literacy Theme (August / Sept)
  • Community Economic Development Theme (Nov)
  • Maternal & Child Health Theme (Feb)
  • The Environment Theme (April)
Step 2:
Please have your club President or Community Service Chair enter your projects into the Days of Service Reporting form found here: Rotary Days of Service - Google Forms **This is key so that the District Public Image and Days of Service committees can provide infographics, dashboards and roll up reporting to enhance the attention and focus on our work and create membership opportunities. 
Step 3:
Capture pictures and even videos of your project. Use them on your club social media, submit to the District Public Image team for the newsletter and submit to the Rotary Showcase.
Step 4:
Enter your project information into Club Central on the RI website for your own club records about your service projects.
