Beds for Kids Project


Members of the St. Michael-Albertville and Monticello Rotary Clubs along with the Crisis Nursery and Family Youth Community Connections (FYCC) have teamed up to provide beds for kids who otherwise would not have a bed to sleep in.

There are hundreds of children in our area who sleep on a floor rather than in a bed.  We are providing these beds to the kids at no cost, but to the kids who get the beds they are priceless.  The children apply via Family Youth Community Connections (FYCC) who coordinates with Crisis Nursery, Rivers of Hope, Wright County Human Services, and the School Districts of Wright County for this program.

The local Rotary Clubs have been successful in securing additional donations of bed frames, mattresses, bedding sets, plush animal toys and books to help us stretch the dollars that our clubs can contribute to this very exciting project.

However, there is still a need and we would be happy to accept the donations of cash, bedding, pillows, full size sheet sets, full size blankets, and full size comforters provided the items are NEW. Anyone that would like more information about this project is welcome to contact any Rotarian from St. Michael-Albertville or Monticello or Call Sandy from FYCC at (763) 416-7912.


Donation drop off sites are Courage Kenny of Albertville, Tree of Life, Financial Security Bank, and Community Development Bank.

Helping people with disabilities make their own music

Music has been an important part of leading an ordinary life for students at the Music School for Children With Disabilities in Honor of Paul Harris in Lublin, Poland. Founded by Rotary members, the school serves 20 students with various disabilities, including Down syndrome, autism, and visual impairments. The Rotary Club of Lublin-Centrum-Maria Curie-Sklodowska has provided funding with help from Rotary Foundation Matching Grants and the Henryk Wieniawski Musical Society, which houses the school.
After their son Mateusz was born with underdeveloped eyes, Mariusz and Joanna Kania looked for ways to help him be active. When he showed an aptitude for music, they looked for a teacher and were thrilled to find the Paul Harris music school.

Finding Safe Haven

For years, Angalia Bianca had slept in abandoned buildings throughout Chicago. She stole. She did drugs. She spent time in and out of jail for forgery, theft, trespassing, and possession of narcotics. But after she landed in prison for the seventh time, something changed -- Bianca knew she wanted a better life. She just didn’t know how to make it happen.
After serving her time, Bianca sought help from a local homeless organization, A Safe Haven, and moved to its shelter in the Rogers Park neighborhood. Bianca followed the program closely -- she attended all the required meetings, passed drug tests, and volunteered at every opportunity.

Saving lives in Ghana

What is it like taking a large team to Africa?  It has probably been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. In mid February, I began leading Rotary members from all over the East Coast of the United States through Ghana. I’ve tried to give the team a warm Ghanaian welcome like I’ve received on my earlier trips. A large trip is a real blessing because each person sees Ghana and our work in a different way.

A highlight for the team was greeting the chief of Sagadugu. The team got excited about buying goats and food for children in the villages where I support eight churches. It was good to see the pastors of most of the eight churches, and I had to explain that we were just passing through on our way to Bolgatanga.

India celebrates three years without polio

Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
The three-year achievement sets the stage for polio-free certification of the entire Southeast Asia region by the World Health Organization. The Indian government also plans to convene a polio summit in February to commemorate this victory in the global effort to eradicate polio.
