Social projects of Rotaract Club Salzburg
Social commitment is of great importance to Rotaract Club Salzburg. Every year members sell mulled wine and other treats on Salzburg’s Christmas market on several days in December, and donate the proceeds to Anna-Bertha-Königsegg-Schule, a school for children with special needs. At least once a semester Rotaracters prepare a meal worthy of kings for Caritas emergency shelter.
Rotaract Club Salzburg regularly contributes to sporadic activities, e.g. recently to the organization of a concert evening for the benefit for the “Schmetterlingskinder “house in Salzburg.

Mulled wine sales and donations to
Anna-Bertha-Königsegg-Schule is a special needs centre for severely disabled children aged 6 to 18. Elaborate concepts and diverse programs are meant to pave the students’ way to a more independent life.
The students’ physical, linguistic-communicative, social, everyday life and cognitive skills are promoted individually. A trained team of more than 50 persons currently look after approx. 70 students in 12 forms. The all-day school disposes of a joinery, its own indoor swimming pool, a gym with a climbing wall, a school garden and a number of institutions such as vision therapy, physiotherapy and occupational therapy.
The costs of this form of intensive care are enormous. Thus Rotaract Club Salzburg set itself the target to regularly support the school. We want to contribute to the best preparation possible for life after school with a number of social activities (e.g. mulled wine sale).
Cooking for Caritas emergency shelter
Since 1997, the Caritas emergency shelter in Salzburg’s Hellbrunnerstraße has been an open-door overnight accommodation for adult men and women who are pressingly unsheltered and destitute.
The emergency shelter offers its guest not only an overnight stay, but also (warm) meals, showers, sanitary products, a washing machine, emergency clothing supply, checkrooms, recreational activities and professional assistance by social workers. Open 365 days a year, the institution needs volunteer cooks to complement the existing group of volunteers.
At least once a semester members of Rotaract Club Salzburg take over this function and prepare a warm, tasty, easily reheated meal in a member’s kitchen.
