CSR DARK - Corona Virus!!!

Member News • Mar 15th, 2020 • (updated: Aug 5th, 2020) • 0 Comments

 

It is with heavy heart, we must report that starting on March 18, 2020, the mighty Covina Sunrise Rotary Club will not be having its regular meetings for the foreseeable future. Furthermore, it has been decided that our upcoming events, including the Disco At The Barn (May 16th) are now cancelled.

It was inevitable. In the first few months of 2020, CSR was off to a great start, planning events, inducting new members, having a great time... then it happened: The world started going insane from a microscopic visitor from Wuhan, China named Covid-19, one of the many Corona Virus strains that have bugged mankind for ages. However, this is the new kid on the block and a bit more lethal than common influenza, so people are buying huge stockpiles of toilet paper (the bug must be causing diarrhea), and bottled water (the virus causes blockages in the water pipes), and deciding not to associate with other humans.

We will be evaluating the issues in the coming weeks and we will be updating this post as news unfolds. So watch this spot for updates. And for information on Rotary's reponse to the Corona Virus, click here:

Operation Santa Clothes

This year, CSR has clothed another group of children in our flagship Operation Santa Clothes program and has now clothed over 35,000 kids with new clothes! We have also been able to provide over $50,000 in scholarships in seven high schools. OSC began in 1994 serving 73 children from one Covina school. The project focuses not only on provided clothing, but giving self esteem, character development, and a sense of caring to these kids. You can help with a tax deductible donation here. See our Santa Clothes page to make a donation or for more information.

CSR has a new home - right here in Covina! We now meet every Tuesday morning at 7:15 at the Covina District Field at 220 W Puente (west of Citrus).
