The Rotary Club of Scarborough in partnership with several District 7070 clubs collaborated to donate funds to Native Child and Family Services of Toronto (Scarborough branch) for their Bimose-Makwa (Walking Bear) after school program. A Rotary District Grant added to the clubs donations so that a cheque  for $10,000 was presented on December 13, 2017 to the Native Child and Family Centre. This program gives children ages 6 to 12 access to Cultural Teachings, Arts & Crafts, Traditional Foods plus Sharing Circles, Traditional Ceremonies and Rites of Passage. If these aspects of their culture are not taught to the children, there is a danger that they will be lost to future generations. The Rotary Clubs of Scarborough, Agincourt, Scarborough Twilight, Toronto East and Uxbridge contributed to this very worthwhile project. The children will develop pride in their identity and become more confident and secure in their heritage.

The Rotary Club of Scarborough & Kids Against Hunger Canada made 14,000 hot meals possible for Sandy Lake First Nations Reserve residents in 2016.  Through funds raised from the Rotary Ribfest and volunteers cooking and packing fortified rice and soy casseroles, the meals will be delivered via ice road during the winter.  The roads are only passable for 6 weeks a year and most supplies that are not able to be flown in throughout the year are driven to the community.  Hunger is a huge concern and this will greatly assist this isolated Northern Ontairo Community.
