Service above self. This is what more than 1 million Rotarians put into action across the globe. It’s a powerful creed and one that has inspired many Free Bookmobile volunteers and supporters, including program founder Glen Weaver. Glen remembers all the work local Rotary clubs did in partnership with homeless service organizations throughout Sonoma County during his time with Committee on the Shelterless (COTS). Now he is fortunate to have their support for literacy outreach, and have they ever come through in 2016!
In addition to investments made by other clubs mentioned in this News blog, generous donations have recently been made by:
Rotary Club of Petaluma Foundation — For our extensive monthly outreach to Petalumans of all ages
Rotary Club of Russian River — For service to rural communities from Guerneville to Jenner
Rotary Club of Santa Rosa West — For prioritizing a large underserved population west of downtown, including Roseland
Rotary Club of Santa Rosa East — For bring great books directly to east Santa Rosa seniors at their homes
Rotary Club of Healdsburg Sunrise — For our comprehensive service to all corners of greater Healdsburg
Thank you, Rotary, for setting the local standard for community service, and for your help with our important mission!
