The Community Service Committee (CSC) is one of five “avenue of service” committees of the Rotary Club of Evergreen.  Its purpose is to coordinate service projects for the Club in the community, including funding and volunteers.   “Community” is broadly defined as anything which is not international in nature, or which does not clearly fit under one of the other (Club, Vocational, Youth Services) avenues of service.  Any member of the Club may be a member of the Community Service Committee. 
 
Community Service Objective:  Recognition that, as Rotarians, we have both an opportunity and a duty to make our community a better place to live by actively serving those around us.
 
Community Service includes in-club activities and programs, as well as support of the out-of-club activities and programs of other entities in the community, in the following areas:
  1. Human Services - Helping people who are less fortunate and in need of a helping hand (examples: Mountain Backpack Program, Salvation Army, Senior Resource Center, Evergreen Christian Outreach, Mountain Resource Center, Habitat for Humanity, Evergreen Attachment Center, Mountain Pregnancy Center, 9 News Health Fair, Easter Seals Camp)
  2. Arts and Culture – Fostering appreciation of the performing and visual arts in the community (examples: Center for the Arts Evergreen, Evergreen Artists Association, Sculpture Evergreen, Evergreen Players, Evergreen Chorale, Children's Chorale, Evergreen Symphony Orchestra)
  3. Civic – Being good citizens by supporting public agencies and organizations that work for the public good (examples: VFW, American Legion, Veteran’s Statue, Rodeo Parade, Downtown Clean-up, Adopt-a-Highway program, Historical Society, Evergreen Fire and Rescue and Public Access Defibulators, Alpine Rescue Team)
  4. Environment – Fostering awareness, appreciation for, and preservation of our natural environment (examples: Recycle Day, Earth Day, Friends of Mt.
