Club Headlines
In April 2018, Sgt. Grant Snyder, the Minneapolis Police Department’s nationally recognized human trafficking expert, took on the role as the department’s liaison to the city’s homeless. His approach to working with the city’s dispossessed will be to use more collaborative ways to address the complex, intertwined causes of homelessness.
 
Our Edina Club Rotaract group joined the March Emerging Leaders Wednesday, March 13 at LIV Chiropractic to prepare sandwiches for "The Sandwich Man's" homeless outreach program. Last year, Allan Law distributed over 800,000 sandwiches to the approximately 4,000 homeless and people in need. With the exception of sandwich making, Mr. Law does much of the distribution work alone, cat napping in his van and working 20-hour days. He also distributes bus tokens, hygiene products, winter wear, socks and blankets. Mr. Law personally joined us during our packing session and it was an honor to become a part of his story and mission. For a better understanding of Mr. Law’s dedication and program click “More” and watch the video.

The Rotary Club of Edina will be hosting Rotary Bingo at the Edina Country Club on Sunday, April 7 from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. This family friendly event provides you, your children, grandchildren and guests an opportunity to experience Spring with your fellow Rotarians and keep the kids busy with unlimited bingo, food and prizes. 

The Rotary Club of Edina is supporting a project of Modular and Matter and the Rotary Club of Edina Morningside to develop a “holistic health hub” in the Malusi Informal Settlement in South Africa.
 
Modular and Matter paid for a fully equipped medical container with three rooms – a central reception area and patient registration room with examination rooms on the left and right. If it is open five days per week in this impoverished area of South Africa, it is estimated that the container clinic will be visited at least 33,500 times per year by residents of the Malusi village.
Members of the Rotary Club of Edina recently completed hands only CPR training led by peers in the Rotary Club of Plymouth. 
 
The Rotary Club of Plymouth offers one-hour Heart Safe training sessions for teenagers and adults who are interested in learning to help save lives. Participants learn hands-only CPR, which teaches chest compressions without mouth-to-mouth breaths, as well as the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). AEDs detect disturbances in the rhythm of a heartbeat and can treat them through defibrillation, allowing the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm.
