Rotary Club of Humble
Chartered April 6, 1967
Proudly Serving Greater Lake Houston Area
Who We Are:
The Rotary Club of Humble is composed of a diverse group of men and women who are business and community leaders that join together, build friendships, exchange ideas, take action and change lives while serving the community. We were chartered in 1967 and presently have 73 members. The motto of Rotary is Service Above Self and that is what guides us. We want to give back to the community by volunteering our time, talent and resources to help those in a need of an opportunity to improve their lives. This may mean providing money to a social service organization that provides food, sheltering, clothes, counseling to those in less than desirable situations : it may mean mentoring with students to help them with their education; it may mean providing books to preschool students to assist them in developing a love for reading; it may be providing scholarships to those wanting to further their education; it may mean promoting world peace thru the understanding of other cultures via Rotary’s Youth Exchange program; it may mean joining with other Rotary Clubs to meet humanitarian needs in other countries by providing water supplies, health care, clothing etc.
Our Vision and Mission:
Our Vision: Be a vibrant organization that attracts leaders, builds friendships, exchanges ideas & takes action to serve the community. Our Mission: We will change lives by providing opportunities.
What we do/have done:
We have invested more than $1.6 million in humanitarian needs over the past 16 years. Included are more than $350,000 to social service organizations such as HAAM, Village Learning Center, Mission NE, YMCA, FamilyTime and others. We have invested more than $140,000 in FFA scholarships and another $100,000 + of other scholarships.
During the past year we have invested more than $100,000 in humanitarian needs
One of our premier projects was the Children of The Dump, where children were depending on the local dump for their source of food. This project has been supported by other Rotary Clubs and has progressed to the point that several of the children in this area recently graduated from college.
Where do our funds come from? An annual fundraiser, Humble Rotary Festival, Eat Fish, Change Lives fish fry and car show is supported by the community via a raffle for a new car and more than 40 community sponsorships. More than 1200 of the community come out to enjoy the Humble Rotary Festival that is scheduled for May 2, 2015.
