It's always a special day when South Sacramento Rotary presents funds to non-profit organizations that are helping make life a little brighter for those who have fallen on hard times. Receiving funds this year were Shelterbox, Camp Grizzly, Sacramento City College scholarships, the Y, St. John's Shelter, a scholarship for Luther Burbank High School, the South Sacramento Interfaith Partnership Food Closet, "I Can Do That," Women's Empowerment, Camellia Juniors, the Sacrmento Guitar Society, the Children's Receiving Home, the Moral Values Program, and Loaves and Fishes and Mustard Seed School. The club also sent a check in support of Rotary House which provides housing for the families of children who are going through treatment at the UC Med Center. It's always a highlight of the year as representatives share what their non-profits do and build new relationships with others in attendance.
At recent meeting, South Sacramento Rotary recognized Students of the Month for April and May. Bryan Ballesteros (2nd from left) and Mai Su Vue (second from right) pose with their counselor and hold their certificates and checks as Rotarians Jocelyn Yap (far left) and David Lambros (back) look on.
