West Valley Community Services Chefs of Compassion
LG Morning Rotary is a proud supporter of West Valley Community Services. We feel this is an extemely important aspect of our Community Service commitment, especially during the Covid-19 Crisis. You may not know, but there are more than 22,000 people living in poverty in the West Valley.

WVCS is there to help. West Valley Community Services is fighting poverty by providing critical food, housing, and support services to the low-income and homeless individuals and families in the west valley communities of Cupertino, Los Gatos, Monte Sereno, Saratoga, and West San Jose. Their mission is to unite the community to fight hunger and homelessness.

Our shared vision is a community where every person has food on the table and every person has a roof over their head. To help achieve these goals, LG Morning Rotary is supporting WVCS's current fund-raiser, Chefs of Compassion. We hope you will find this a fun, delicious, and heart-warming experience. Please order food and entry to the virtual event at http://www.chefsofcompassion.org today before the event is sold out. Limited availability.

Did you feel like you missed something this holiday season?

Covid-19 definitely threw a damper on our public Holiday traditions in Los Gatos and beyond. Most of our community celebrations were either canceled or curtailed due to our need to stay safe, protect ourselves and our neighbors. Because we have so many traditions in our Communities that we identify with the Holidays, we decided to support other organizations in Town to create a wonderful short documentary that commemorates our "normal" celebrations as a reminder of what was in the past, and what we'll do again as soon as the Pandemic has waned. Even though it's now February, we hope you will enjoy  Los Gatos Morning Rotary Presents, "A Very Merry Holiday Special, 2020". This delightful short documentary for the family celebrates local holiday traditions and the organizations that make it all possible, in Los Gatos, San Jose, and beyond. We hope you enjoy,  and look forward to the real deal next season! Stay safe!
Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary's people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end. We invite you to learn more about Rotary, and what your friends and neighbors at Los Gatos Morning Rotary Club are up to. We invite you to join our virtual Zoom meetings during the Pandemic and to consider joining us as a member if you can.

We start our meetings with a song - Why?

The main reason is that it makes us feel good; and at 7:30 am, who can't use a lift? The rest of the day can be better if you just belt a tune!
