Saratoga Rotarians participated in the 2023 Back-To-School event with West Valley Community Services! The  event was a huge success…and that is all because of you, our volunteers, who gave their time, energy and assistance in helping prepare our community’s young people for academic success this fall.
Because of you, 295 children were able to receive brand new back-to-school clothes, shoes and a backpack full of school supplies.  But more than just shirts and shoes, the children received a gift that will build their confidence and self-esteem as they start a brand new school year.
“Thanks so much for all the clothes! Today was one of the best days in my life!” – Jake, age 7
“This event helps so much because I cannot afford to buy my kids new shoes or clothes.” – Bea, mom

Preparations are on the way for our Operation Care & Comfort service project. We will be writing thank you cards & preparing care packages at our October meeting. Shinku Sharma & Lee Ann Payne are leading the efforts for this year’s project!
