Pittsburgh East Rotary Club (PERC) is a dynamic group of professionals and leaders dedicated to community service in Pittsburgh and the world.
With just the right mixture of youth and experience, the members of the PERC are engaged in wonderful service projects at the local, regional, national, and global levels. We serve meals at the East End Cooperative Ministries shelter.
We do all this in addition to our contributions to the goals of Rotary International. These include the End Polio Campaign, Rotary Peace Fellowships, Community Corps, Youth Exchanges, the New Generations Service Exchange, as well as Rotary Grants and Scholarships.
Our mentoring work in the KIVA program for low- income entrepreneurs is extensive. In the wider world, we support such things as: the Eco-Soap Bank in Indonesia, which saves, sanitizes, and supplies recycled soap in the developing world; and the Cameroon Football Development Program, whose mission is to improve the lives of youth in Africa through the game of soccer. PERC has two meeting each month. Our main meeting is on the first Thursday of every month, from 8:30 to 9:30 at an East End coffee shop or local business. On the third Wednesday of every month, we have an informal Happy Hour meeting from 6:30 to 7:30 (or later) at one of the East End’s exciting restaurants or bars.
