Who we are: 

The Bloomfield Rotary Club is a group of business professionals that have come together in the spirit of good will to positively impact the Bloomfield and world communities.  In existence for almost 40 years, we work to improve our community by helping people in need, promoting education and family, and by bringing people of all races and religions together to build strong and lasting relationships through fellowship and good works.

How We Support Education

Our Club believes in the importance of educating the Children of Bloomfield.  To support our mission, we positively reinforce the Bloomfield School children by running a Student of the Month program in conjunction with the Bloomfield Board of Education, recognizing a child from each Bloomfield School every month during the school year for academic excellence.

 We have also supported education through charitable donations to the Bloomfield Social and Youth Services backpack program that provides much needed backpack and school supplies to underprivileged children.  And also by supporting the Bloomfield Performing Arts Identity program by helping to fund a trip to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC by a group of Bloomfield Students.
 
How We Help those in need:
The Rotary Club of Bloomfield Helps those in the Bloomfield and World communities by supporting many projects to improve the quality of life for those less fortunate.  First, and foremost, we support Rotary International's charge to eradicate Polio from the planet by raising funds and donating them to Rotary International.  We also have donated to projects to bring clean water to many villages in Guatemala, where they had no running water before our help.  We've Fed the hungry by supporting Foodshare and their mission to feed people in Connecticut, and by supporting the (food)backpack program that provides food for Bloomfield students on the weekends when they are not getting their daily free lunch.  We've warmed our neighbors by supporting Operation Fuel and their mission to provide heating assistance to those in need.  We've helped to prevent malaria by providing mosquito netting to families in Africa.  Our club has helped the disabled by helping to build the Boundless Playground at the Jewish Community Center.  We've helped the blind by supporting Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation and their mission to provide trained guide dogs to the blind.
