The signature SERVICE project of the Rotary club of Sterling is the "Sterling Community Chest."  For decades, the club has led this local fundraiser for the community. The members literally go door to door tom very house in the community and hand out fliers and ask citizens to contribute to the fund which serves as the main sponsor for most all the local nonprofits, such as Red Cross, scouts, hospice, Salvation Army, Food Bank, and even funds the rotary dictionary project.
