Rotary Club of Rancho Mirage Community Projects

August 19, 2020

Our Rancho Mirage Rotary Club members are busy working on collecting small items for our “We Care” Project for the month of September, the items will be delivered to seniors along with the Meals on Wheels Program from the Joslyn Senior Center. The Chairman of this project is Annalee Davis, she is a retired third grade teacher who has moved to Rancho Mirage recently. She has become a very enthusiastic member of our Rotary club and you will always find her eager to help or donate. She has asked us collect items such as, small bottles of hand lotion, cue tips, toothbrushes, hand sanitizers, nail clippers, Kleenex, etc. The key word is SMALL! Delivery of packets will be on September 17.

Rotary is always looking for projects that will help make Rancho Mirage the best community to live in because people care. For more information about Rotary feel free to contact Luz Gonzales of Southern California Bank at or Vanessa Tapia of Provident Bank at who can answer your questions.
