The Elmira Rotary has an annual, ongoing, partnership with Diven Elementary School. The partnership started in the fall of 2006. The club and it's members help the staff and students with much-needed additional financial and personnel resources. 

Rotarians help Diven Elementary as classroom volunteers, assisting teachers with projects, events and programs, and with donations of money, school supplies and equipment. Previous year, Rotarian-sponsored activities include:

  • Character award recognition ceremony.
  • Pennies for Polio collection that gave Diven students, who are often on the receiving end, an opportunity to give to others.
  • Playground upgrading and expansion project.
  • Tedd Arnold book collection donation for the school’s library, with books autographed by the author.
  • School supplies, backpacks and clothing donations.
  • School ground beautification project, with flowers planted in front of the building.
