For the second consecutive year, Francis Parker School's Interact Club has been awarded the prestigious Changemaker Award from Rotary. Recipients of this award satisfy various club requirements which include international projects, local projects and meeting twice a month. This prestigious certificate is signed by the local Rotary district governor and by the president of Rotary International. 

See below for a list of this year's local and international Interact Club projects.

Local Projects

Sports for Exceptional Athletes
In addition to hosting the Sports for Exceptional Athletes Spring basketball tournament, the club provides the opportunity for Parker students and Interactors alike to volunteer at multiple events.

Wounded Warriors Dinner
Once a month, the club provides dessert for the Wounded Warriors dinner at Balboa Hospital. More than 100 warriors are able to take part in the dinner. Additionally, the club assists in regular meal serving at the hospital through Summer 2012.

Goodie Bags
The club provided items for goodie bags for sailors returning from a deployment. These sailors were returning to San Diego, but did not have family members to greet them.

International Projects

Donations to India
The club raised funds and collected books for donation to a school for the deaf in India. 

Thousand Smiles
More than $1000 has been donated to Thousand Smiles - a program in Mexico that provides free services to children born with clef palates. Several Interact members have also visited Thousand Smile Clinics for a weekend to provide joy and interaction to children waiting for services. The club has also provided craft items and stuffed animals, toothbrushes, and toothpaste for children to enjoy. 

Project Mercy
Interact members participated in Project Mercy, an initiative that constructs homes in a single day for families in Mexico that have meet certain qualifying criteria.
