Operation Freedom Paws

Operation Freedom Paws is a non-profit created initially by Mary Cortani to help a desparate veteran cope with PTSD.  By matching a needy shelter dog with a haunted veteran, and teaching both how to support one another, Operation Freedom Paws was launched.  Today they provide companion/service dogs to veterans with PTSD as well as physical and medical limitations, other adults and children.  They provide the dogs to their clients at no cost, other than the client's time to work with the dogs under Mary's supervision.  Some dogs are trained to work with diabetics, epileptics, and are sensitive to client moods and changes in body chemistry.  The most important benefit seems to be the bonding between the service dog and client.

Community Services Funds Columbia Middle School Cheerleaders

Sunnyvale Rotary Community Services Committee used discretionary funds to provide uniforms for Columbia Middle School Cheerleaders.  The six young ladies lead spirit yells and cheer on the Columbia Middle School athletes at inter-school competitions.  According to International Services Chair, Flo Stafford, this is the first time the cheerleaders have had uniforms.  The project was initiated by the Columbia School mothers and Sunnyvale Rotary was able to pitch in to make it happen.  This is an example of your Rotary dollars at work.  Thanks for your support.


Rotarians Serving at Homeless Shelter

Sunnyvale Rotarians and friends prepared and served dinner for the homeless at the Cold Weather Shelter on Wednesday, February 11th. Many Rotarians donated food and helped fund the dinner. A special thanks to Pat Sargent and members of the Sunnyvale Elks Lodge for their hard work preparing the meal. Joe Ribera and Mary-Ann Wallace also supplied needed men's clothing in XL and XXL sizes which are the most needed items right now. 
The Cold Weather Shelter in North Sunnyvale serves 100-125 homeless individuals nightly from December through March. Sunnyvale Rotary has been serving dinner once a month at the Shelter for over 20 years. Our next and final dinner service for this shelter year will be on Wednesday, March 16. Speciality Solid Waste & Recycling will once again make their fabulous tri-tip sirloin dinner.  Other Rotarians will supply the rest of the feast and serve
