Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary had another great opportunity to continue to partner with Vista del Camino, which is the City of Scottsdale’s social services network. 

The back-to-school program provides essential school supplies, backpacks, clothing and shoes to 1,025 Scottsdale-based, Kindergarten through 12th grade, income-eligible students at an event at Scottsdale Stadium in July. A broad partnership of city, school, civic, faith and business organizations collaborate on this program that equips students for school success.

Scottsdale Sunrise provided volunteers for two shifts to assist in the distribution of the supplies to the kids. In addition, a group of club members went to Vista del Camino in August to help sort, inventory and pack leftover items. 

The back-to-school program would not be possible without the generous support of individuals, groups, and organizations that donate, sponsor and volunteer for the program.

Working with Vista del Camino has allowed Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary to become more involved in the community. Believe it or not, there are families in need in Scottsdale and our club takes every opportunity to lend a hand.
