Rotarians Give a Sheet
The Santee-Lakeside Rotary Club donates annually to the East County Transitional Center (ECTLC).  The Center provides transitional living and programs and services that restore the lives of those who are homeless.   One of the ways the Santee-Lakeside Rotary Club helps ECTC is engaging in a very simple project supporting a very basic human need - toilet paper!   Club members each contribute packages of toilet paper for East County Transitional Living Center because “Rotarians Give a Sheet.” This drive took place at the Club's installation dinner.  It's a fun project and everyone looks forward to participating.

Saturday, August 20, several Rotarians from the Santee-Lakeside Rotary Club volunteered to help distribute 900 backpacks to kids gearing up for the new school year.  The day before, Rotarians and others filled the backpacks with supplies in just one hour thanks to the great organizing skills of those who set up.  Backpacks were distributed at a drive-up location at Rio Seco elementary school. They were all gone within 1.5 hours! One family was so excited to be able to get backpacks for their school-aged children that the mother shared they were homeless. As she left, she honked the horn to show her appreciation. What a feel-good moment!  The program is named after Buddy Rubaya, a founder of this program, who passed away in 2020. All the supplies and backpacks were donated by community members and organizations. 


                                                                   
Annually, on the last Saturday in April, Rotarians celebrate Rotarians at Work Day.  This year we celebrated on April 30th, with a great group of Rotarians and spouses from our club.  Feeding San Diego was the beneficiary of our efforts where we sorted corn - good from bad - and then bagged for distribution. Mixed in were some worms/caterpillars, which caused a few "ewes” as we purged them from the corn. Nothing was wasted. Discarded corn will be sent to a farm to feed pigs. Altogether we bagged 1200 pounds of usable corn on the cob, which will feed 600 families.  Thank you to all our volunteers!   We even got a special visit from District Governor Dan Gensler and Governor Nominee Don Fipps.
 

 
The Rotary Club of Santee-Lakeside donated much needed supplies for the Fisher House San Diego, from laundry detergent to coffee to toilet paper. Fisher Houses are comfortable temporary homes designed to provide a sanctuary for the families of our military's wounded, ill and injured. Since 1991 The Fisher House Foundation has been building these homes and gifting them to the operating branch of service.  At present time there is no cost for a family to stay at a Fisher House. All lodging costs are covered by the Fisher House Foundation. The two houses in San Diego each have 9 guest suites, common kitchens and dining areas, laundry and outdoor seating. It is a “home away from home” available to active duty and retired military, veterans and their families coping with the medical crisis. These homes allow military families to focus on the medical care and recovery of their loved one. More information about Fisher House San Diego can be found at https://www.sandiegofisherhouse.org/.
