Palm Springs Sunup Rotary Club Expands Their “Shoes That Fit” Program
 
The Palm Springs Sunup Rotary Club started a program in 1999 to distribute shoes to children in the community.  This program has now been expanded to include backpacks.
 
 On August 11th, President Michael Pitts, along with several members of the Sunup Rotary club, distributed 75 Payless Shoes Cards to kids at the ‘James O. Jessie Desert  Highland Utility Center’ in Palm Springs.  Each card is worth $25 and was enthusiastically received by the excited parents and kids at the facility.
 
To learn more about the Palm Springs Sunup Rotary Club visit  www.palmspringssunuprotary.org or on our Facebook Page.
 
Palm Springs Sunup Rotary is part of Rotary International, an international service organization, whose stated purpose is to bring business and professional leaders together in order to provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
 
The Palm Springs Sunup Rotary Club recently donated 400 pairs of UV protected sunglasses to Dennis Jory, board member of Well in the Desert, of Palm Springs and another 400 pair to Amina Aun, shelter manger, at the Roy’s Desert Resource Center in Palm Desert.  The presentations were made by President Michael Pitts and immediate past President Tony Gentry.
 
This time of year, here in the Coachella Valley, the need for UV protected sun glasses are in great demand for the homeless.  The intense glare from the sun is the primary cause of eye damage, that can lead to blindness.
