What We Do

Supporting our Local Community

Badger Prairie Needs Network 

Fitchburg Verona Rotarians help out at the Badger Prairie Needs Network. The Badger Prairie Needs Network (BPNN), formerly Verona Area Needs Network, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to ending hunger and addressing the root causes of generational poverty thorughout the communities we serve.
 
For more than 29 years, BPNN has provided food assistance to low- and very low-income households in the Verona Area School District, including parts of Fitchburg and Madison.
 

Books for the World

The Fitchburg Verona Rotary Club helps out with 'Books for the World.' Books for the World is a global literacy project, supervised by Rotarians, that puts used books from the United States that might otherwise be discarded into the hands of children in other countries where educational resources are in short supply.
 
Many children whom this project reaches have never even held a book. let along learned how to read. The overall goal of this project is to enhance literacy while also promoting international understanding.
 

Little Free Library

The Fitchburg Verona Rotary Club contributes to Little Free Books. Little Free LIbrary has been recognized by or partnered with First Book, the Chronicle of Philanthropy, the Library of Congress, and the International Literacy Asociation, to name a few. Hailed by the New York Times as "a global sensation," Little Free Library is a new but already well-known non-profit changing the face of community outreach and literacy initiatives today.
 
 
 

Roadside Clean-Up

Two to three times per year, the Fitchburg Verona Rotary Club cleans up trash along South Fish Hatchery Road. This is part of our continual effort to keep our community clean and safe.

Supporting our Global Community

Books for the World Reaches Swaziland

The Fitchburg Verona Rotary Club donated boxes of books to support the "Books for the World." The Rotary Club of Manzini, in the year 2015, managed to inspire and motivate the Swazi child to read. This was done through the distribution of books to schools that requested them from the Book Centre after such information was make available to the nation. This saw a number of schools flocking to the centre to collect books for their schools. Teachers from these schools visit the centre to select the books they want and transport them back to their schools. The centre also provided the Swazliand National Library with books for their mobile school library project.
 

Water Cisterns in Kenya

Water issues in Kenya's semi-arid region are Increasingly becoming a chronic concern. In many instances, it is the difference between life and death. The Fitchburg Verona Rotary Club has decided to take action and donated a water cistern allowing for better access to potable water. The Fitchburg Verona Rotary Club chose this particular community as an acknowledgement to their committed efforts in reforestation. Their effect of planting and caring for over 100,000 trees has caused rippling effects throughout the community and their ecosystem.
 
Water cisterns also reduce the need to harvest more trees. Without cisterns, the rain water is lost and wood is needed in order to boil the water for drinking. Providing the community with cisterns is an important step in ending this vicious cycle. More trees mean more water in the ecosystem and more crop land that won't fall victim to issues of erosion during the rainy season.
