Your Weekly Update!

August 17th, 2022

Dear Rotarians,

A Tuesday newsletter this week because your editor was up in Yosemite with limited Internet. Thankfully, she returned back in one piece and can't wait for this Friday's District Governor's visit! Hope to see you there.

In club news, last week was our first Wednesday Night Live at The Red Onion. The fellowship was fantastic and I like to believe a good time was had by all. We had a few special guests and our "honorary" members were in attendance as well. A few snaps below and more on our club Facebook page.

Thank you from the DG on our school supply drive

Your generosity allowed the Rotary Club of Inglewood to supply several hundred students, including 70 identified homeless students, with backpacks and supplies.  Our Community Service co-chairs DGN Albert Hernandez and Rotarian Maye Stacy put out a call to action and the people of action responded.  Job well done!

Sweet Cases With Rotary Club Of Mental Health

The Greater Van Nuys Rotary Club is collaborating with several other Rotary Clubs, Interact Clubs, and the general public on Saturday, September 10th, from 10 am-12 pm to decorate Sweet Cases  for foster youth through the non-profit, Together We Rise. 

The Rotary Club of Mental Health & Wellness will be sponsoring 10 Sweet Cases for the event, which includes a blanket, teddy bear, coloring book with crayons, and a hygiene kit.

Proceeds collected by each club will help fund Together We Rise's different foster support programs, such as college and vocational scholarships, siblings' days together at Disneyland, teen shopping sprees, emergency relief support, and retreats, to name a few,  but also each financially partnering Rotary Club will be matched with foster agencies in our community so we can donate our finished items afterward to see the immediate impact.

Stop by to help decorate the sweet cases on Saturday, September 10th, 2022, from 10 am-12 pm at the Salvation Army San Fernando Valley 14917 Victory Blvd. Van Nuys, CA 91411.
