Yorba Linda Sunrise Rotary
Making a Difference!
Thank you to all our members and community supporters who donated to "The ASK" Campaign which just recently ended.  Because of COVID 19, we were unable to host our annual 2020 Lobsterfest event with about 1400 people at the Yorba Linda Community Center last May.  This one and only annual fundraiser for the Yorba Linda Sunrise Rotary Club, which generates a net of between $80,000-$95,000 each year, funds all our local and international charities.  We launched "The ASK" campaign, hoping to raise at least $40,000 to help our community.  To our delight and surprise, we far exceeded that goal to almost $61,000 to date!  We want to express our gratitude to all who donated to this cause during this time of crisis!  Thank you! 
Yorba Linda Sunrise Rotary financially supported this small school in Las Pinas, Philippines located in a high poverty area hard hit by COVID 19.  Hotspots and tablets enable students to access education despite schools being shut down.

Yorba Linda Sunrise Rotary did a drive up celebration in honor of Deputy Hana Robertson as the Law Enforcement Officer of the Year.  We presented the Deputy with her individual plaque as well as a perpetual plaque that will be on display at the station house.  Congratulations to Deputy Hana Robertson and thank you to all the officers for the work they do.
It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the cancellation of this year's Lobsterfest. 
 
Our concern is for the safety and health of everyone.
 
We want to thank and celebrate all of you that have come to support us in the past and we look forward to celebrating with you next year in May of 2021.
 
Our club made a financial contribution of $2,000 to support this project, which ultimately led to the assembly of nearly 70,000 medical quality face shields.  We received 1,000 of these shields to distribute to medical facilities that we as a club felt might need them the most.  
 
The following facilities received shields from Yorba Linda Sunrise.
 
  • 200 shields went to City of Hope Cancer Center in Newport Beach
  • 250 shields went to Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC)
  • 250 shields went to Placentia Linda Hospital
  • 100 shields went to the Brookdale Senior Living and Memory Care center on Imperial Highway
  • 75 shields went to ActivCare Memory Care center on Valley View Ave
  • 50 shields went to Sunrise Assisted Living center on Lakeview Ave
  • 50 shields went to Eastern Star Senior Living center on Bastanchury Road
  • 25 shields went to Yorba Linda Food for Families
    • While YLFFF is not a medical center, we felt that their volunteers who interact with the community in such a critical way with their food distribution efforts required some additional protection the same as those serving in the medical care fields
Thank you to everyone who helped with the assembly of the shields.  This was a wonderful project that started with an idea from a Fullerton Rotarian and it has taken off around the world.
