Some of Our Projects...
RYLA- Rotary Youth Leadership
Each year our Rotary District 5330 holds a Youth Leadership Camp. Riverside Sunrise chooses to send 10 or more local high school students to this valuable training. The kids are instructed in leadership programs and activities that are designed to inspire our future leaders and to give these kids a chance to achieve beyond their normal experiences. We see most of these kids going to college and staying active in community projects and support.
Eddie Dee Senior Center
Each year, we bring our Interact students to help decorate and serve the seniors lunch or dinner, and sometimes to call Bingo. These seniors do not have many regular visitors, so bringing the energy and enthusiasm of these high schoolers is often the highlight of their week. For the kids, this is such a great lesson in helping not just others, but those who are older and often neglected.
Feeding the Veterans
On the second Saturday of the month, you will find our members at March Air Reserve Base feeding the homeless Veterans. Monthly we serve a barbecue lunch to as many as eighty veterans.
San Javier, Mexico
For many years, our club has flown Doctors and medical supplies to a small remote village on the Baja Peninsula. San Javier is almost 100 miles from the nearest medical facility, so these visits are often the villagers only opportunity for medical exams, vaccinations, dental exams, and to have their eyes checked.
