Cilena Trujillo - Jump Into School Bash

Last week, we heard from Cilena Trujillo and her Jump in 2 School Bash project where she provided backpacks, school supplies, haircuts, manicures and more to over 3,000 kids each summer.  She started the project because as a foster child she understands how demoralizing it is to start the school year without supplies.

To help out, our club collected backpacks. Shirley Anderson shopped with money from club members and filled the backpacks with school supplies.  Cilena told us that our club made the largest single donation of backpacks.  We are looking forward to possibly volunteering at the event on July 20.

Ruidoso Donations

Rotarians get things done.  At the meeting, we discussed various donation drives in place. The District has decided that the most effective approach for our district is to send donations directly to the Ruidoso Club's Foundation. This will enable the Ruidoso Rotarians to allocate funds to where and when they are most needed. Your willingness to help and participate fills us with pride. Please send your donations to the address provided below, and they will be forwarded to the President of the Ruidoso Club.
