I am a proud member of this Rotary Club. The members really care about helping others and giving back to our community. I was surprised just how much money our clubs gives out to local non-profits, youth leadership development, College scholarships, and international non-profits. We give out an average of $200,000 annually from our Charities and scholarship foundation. We serve in our community at least once a month and partner with many organizations such as Rebuilding Together, Rise Against Hunger, Saint Luke Pantry and so many more. If you want to meet good-hearted people - Join us! We meet every Tuesday @los gatos lodge 12:15pm - 1:30pm. www.losgatosrotary.org
I am a proud Rotarian with Los Gatos afternoon Rotary Club. We hold 2 major fundraisers each year and with the proceeds and the money in our Charities Foundation we are able to give back financial support to local and international non-profits. I am a mother of 3 and I love that Rotary invests in youth leadership development and opportunities. All of my children have been able to attend Rotary hosted leadership development camp called (RYLA - Rotary Youth Leadership Award) and ELC (Enterprise Leadership Conference) at no cost as Rotarians pay for this development. The networking for Rotarians and youth are worth it and you find they become life-long friends of yours! Since Rotary is international they are able to make this world better and with the help of many Rotary has (almost) eradicated Polio! There is so much more - check it out - www.losgatosrotary.org - Becoming a member costs very little - but you gain so much.
