Vino Amore

 
Bakersfield East Rotary's annual premier fund raiser, raising money for our 5 avenues of service. A marvelous sit down dinner with paired wines, this is a must for members and guests. Silent and live auction with items donated by major donors and members round out a spectacular evening.
 

 

Annual Backpack Drive

Every year before school starts, Bakersfield East Rotary Club provides backpacks for students of several organizations such as The Boys and Girls Club, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), Bakersfield Homeless Shelter, and several of our sponsored elementary schools including College Heights Elementary. Inside each backpack are pencils, erasers, notebooks and notebook papers to help the children in these programs get a good start to their school year. In 2014 we handed out approximately 850 backpacks.
 

 

Jamison Center

The Jamison Center is a housing/intervention program for children who have been removed from their homes and taken into protective custody by law enforcement. It is a frightening situation for these children who arrive most times with just the clothes on their back and little else. Bakersfield East Rotary Club donates clothes, especially underwear and socks for these kids. Babies are often brought to the facility without diapers or change of clothes. Rotarians from Bakersfield East donate diapers, baby clothes and blankets for the babies and their foster parents. Recently it was brought to Bakersfield East Rotarians attention that the existing barbecue was not functioning. Rotarians immediately went into action and purchased a new barbecue while repairing their existing brick barbecue, bringing it back to working order.
 

 

Boys and Girls Club of Kern County

Bakersfield East Rotary Club has had a long relationship with The Boy's and Girl's Club of Kern County. With their original site in East Bakersfield, it was a natural fit. We have provided backpacks, vans, Thanksgiving Dinner to the area citizens, scholarships, Christmas and Halloween parties and goodies, and support any time a need arises. This organization has successful programs during the summer and after school programs during the school year. It is a safe place for these area children after school. We also provide "sweat equity" when the need arises, providing graffiti removal when the building or vans get "tagged."
