I have been a member of the Rotary Club of Concord for several years and it has shown me a great example of how communities come together. Service clubs are made up of individuals who want to contribute to the community, have an opportunity to network for their business and get a chance to meet some really nice people who share their interest in living in a strong community. One of the things I like about Rotary is that fighting hunger is a major concern of the international organization. On the local level, my club sorts food twice a year at the Food Bank warehouse. The Clayton Sunrise Rotary club sorts food every week and the Lamorinda Sunrise club and the Diablo Vista Club sort food several times a year. Many other Rotary clubs make financial donations to the Food Bank.
Communities are better when Service Clubs Make A Difference. Rotary clubs. Kiwanis clubs, Lions clubs, Soroptomists, and Masons all contribute to their community. The Food Bank can do its work because of the support it receives from the community. Service clubs help make that happen.
