Huntingdon Valley- Churchville Rotary continues to honor its commitment to improving communities it serves  by providing significant donations to charity. Two current examples are "Next Step Orlando" and the "Breathing Room Foundation".
 
 
Next Step Orlando exists to provide those living with a spinal cord injury the opportunity to achieve their greatest recovery potential and an overall increased quality of life.
 
 
The  Breathing Room's Foundation's (BRF)  mission is to provide care and support to local families affected by cancer. BRF recognizes that a cancer diagnosis affects every aspect of a family’s life; emotional, physical, spiritual and financial. BRF strives to provide a family with whatever it is that will allow them a bit of “breathing room” from their daily struggle against cancer. It is their hope that this will allow them to concentrate all of their efforts towards regaining their physical health.

Pictured left to right- son Jacob Burstein, dad Mark, "Breathing Room" Volunteer Coordinator Eileen Carissimi, and mom Stephanie
 
Living with cancer is a very challenging time not only for the patient but for his or her loving family. That's where the "Breathing Room Foundation (BRF) " can step in to help.  BRF was spotlighted by the Huntingdon Valley-Churchville Rotary speaker series on March 14.
 
Jacob was diagnosed with cancer at 9 months. He is cancer free for 2 years, but needs intensive followup. The ordeal caused tremendous stress for  parents Mark and Stephanie Burstein, who also have a six year old son "Sammy'" . The Bursteins were referred to BRF in 2015. The largely volunteer -driven program provided a wealth of help including school supplies, holiday meals, summer fun activities and an intense yard cleanup. Mark and Stephanie spoke glowingly about how BRF dramatically improved the Burstein's quality of life.

It  was a cool, cucumber crisp spring day.  Huntingdon Valley- Churchville Rotary held its annual "Fish-A-Long", Saturday April 25 at Lomirer Park in Abington.  One hundred kids and their families  attended from  the immediate area and  Philadelphia.  The purpose of the event was to introduce children to the sport of fishing.
 
The "Fish-A-Long" is the "brain child" of long time club member Dick Freed. Said event co-chair Ken Barber, " the "Fish-A-Long"  brought together people of varying ages and backgrounds to enjoy a common experience -  families spending time together, parents teaching children new skills, people of all ages rediscovering the joys of nature, inner city young people experiencing the open space of the park.  It was a rewarding day for Rotarians and the community."
