Rotary Club holds holiday drive
This holiday season the Rotary Club of Poway-Scripps is holding a supply drive for Corazon de Vida, a nonprofit organization supporting orphanages near Tijuana.
Club members heard about the organization when one of its board members, George Perez of Orange County, made a presentation in the summer. Rotary Club members are scheduled to visit the orphanage in December.
The needs of the orphanage are simple, but when housing children of various ages, these items are much needed. Those willing to help are encouraged to bring items listed to the locations below.
Needed items include: toilet paper, bleach, dish soap, liquid detergent, cooking oil, heavy duty mops and brooms, large heavy duty trash bags, feminine products, baby wipes, shaving razors, shaving cream, diapers sizes 4 and 5 only, body lotion, hair gel, sun block lotion, hair ties for girls, Pine Sol type cleaners, lunch juice boxes, breakfast nutrition bars. There is also a need for Smart & Final and COSTCO gift cards.
Note that they cannot accept candy, shoes or clothing.
Collection sites in Poway are at Walter Andersen Nursery, 12755 Danielson Ct.; Dr. William Racicot, DDS at 13206 Carriage Road, #105; and Campo Creek Winery at 13538 Poway Road.
In Scripps Ranch, drop off locations are at the office of Edward Jones – David Parker, financial advisor, 9968 Hibert St., #102; and Chase Bank, 9994 Scripps Ranch Blvd.
Donations will be accepted through November. Learn more about Corazon de Vida at: corazondevida.org.
