President Gerry      24 Homemade blanketsBell Ringing for Salvation Army   
President Gerry Humes (shown above left) has selected "Making A Difference TOGETHER" as her theme for the 2017-2018 club year.
Members worked together recently to make 24 blankets for the children at Valley of the Moon Childrren's Home.
We have donated our time ringing bells for the Salvation Army each year, and see so many children give money they have saved for people less fortunate.

We continue offering our scholarships and awards for Santa Rosa Junior College students, as well as students seeking career Certificates and those who have been accepted into a Masters degree program at a 4 year college in Sonoma or Marin County.

Our club works with Social Advocates for Youth, offering 60+ sleeping bags and ground tarps each year for youth on the streets in Sonoma County as well as financial support for their programs.  We donated 7,000 pairs of socks in 2016 so they could have clean dry socks year round and are known as the Sock Ladies.

We recently donated 2 Sand and 2 Water outdoor "play tables" with play tools for the children of homeless women clients of the "Living Room"

 

We attend and donate financial support each year to the North Bay Go Red for Women Event to help spread the word that 80% of cardiac events can be prevented with education and life style changes. 1 in 3 deaths among women are caused by Heart disease and Stroke.

We donated $10,000 to CAL FIRE to train staff to present Fire Safety to elementary schools around Sonoma County by interacting as clowns with comedy theater puppets.
The program now includes Water Safety and Education about the Smart Train.

Check for Rail Car-2015 Service Chair Marie Frazer, standing along with other members of our Santa Rosa Soroptimist club, presented our check for $50,000 to the Board of the Santa Rosa Parks Foundation (shown on front) in November 2015. This donation was used to purchase a new rail car similar to the one shown for children and guests at the Howarth Park Train Station.  GO RIDE THE NEW CAR launched in February 2017  in Howarth Park.

We invite representatives from various organizations or businesses to speak at our club meetings to learn more about how they  benefit the community as we raise Pulic Awareness about our own club.

We hope you will join us at one of our meetings or attend one of our upcoming fundraiser events. We are already planning our next fundraiser for the 2017/2018 club year, and Chair Marie expects that event to be as exciting as the Cabaret event held in January of 2016 .
