Weekend with Local City Farm and Food Bank

Weekend with Local City Farm and Food Bank

In the past weekend, members of our club helped with 2 activities.

The first one was with the local city farm, Stadsboerderij Schildershoeve, where we planted some flowers and installed a plane spring swing for children to have fun with, now that the spring is here. People working at the farm were happy with the result!

The second activity was to collect non-perishable items for a social shop of Scheveningen, Schappelijk. The Social Shop Schappelijk offers extra help for the residents of Scheveningen, who find themselves in a delicate financial situation. Members of Rotaract Scheveningen, Rotary Scheveningen and Schappelijk were placed at 5 different supermarkets near the Scheveningen beach. With the help of the residents, we were able to collect 235 crates of non-perishable products.

Our year 2021 ended with a big project that we did for Stichting Perspectief. As an outreach project, we gathered Sinterklaas gifts for women and children who are not home due to domestic violence. We wanted to do something special as Sinterklaas could bring joy 

Cooking for the homeless

Cooking for the homeless

On November 27, volunteers of the Rotaract Scheveningen helped the local home shelter Leger des Heils. Leger des heils is a shelter home for homeless people where the residents can stay for 2 years. They also provide a shed for non-residents where they can stay and have some coffee.

The club volunteers helped the shelter prepare lasagna for the residents and non-residents. The volunteers had a fun time preparing the lasagna. Even though the food was served past the usual dutch dinner time due to the non-working oven, the guests and residents of the shelter were very understanding and patient. Everyone loved the lasagna and complimented it.
