Rancho Bernardo Sunrise Rotary Club members recently hosted a breakfast and holiday gift giveaway at Valley Elementary School for hundreds of area families needing a little extra Christmas cheer.
Working alongside school staff and members of their sister club from Tijuana, 20 Rancho Bernardo Rotarians gave up their Saturday morning to provide breakfast, holiday gifts, wrapping, and good cheer to those needing it most.
“It’s an amazing experience to get up a little early, work a little harder, give a little more, and make so many lives a little bit better,” said event coordinator Bob Davie. Davie and his team worked with numerous area merchants to provide food, supplies, and gift items for Poway’s families in need.
“There’s a hidden population that needs an extra boost now and again — people who, through no fault of their own, are finding it tough to provide that holiday gift for their family members,” said club President Jim Stewart. “This is why RB Sunrise Rotarians do their fundraising year-round — so that we’re able to fund programs of this sort.”
The RB Sunrise Rotary Club is comprised of 55 North County business and community leaders who meet for breakfast at 7 a.m. every Tuesday at the Rancho Bernardo Country Club. Visit www.rbsunrise.org for more information.
