2022 Look Back

Here is to 2022 , a look back at a terrific year filled with tremendous joy and gratitude. Together we were able to donate our time to better our communities and the lives of those around us,
We partnered with the The Salvation Army International Outreach program to participate in food packaging event that would end up creating 15,000 meals to be distributed to local communities in need.
We teamed up with Valley Interfaith Community Resource Center and Mrs. Tris Caserio Graphic Arts Class from Laurel High School to deliver cards and sweets to senior meals in the spring and in the fall we contributed potted plants and handmade cards from the Religious Education Program at St. Genevieve Catholic Church.
We used our District Grant to purchase playground activity equipment for Rio Vista Elementary School and Lankershim Elementary School!
We became a sponsor for Music Mends Minds, Inc. and now work with the organization to put on weekly Wednesday concerts right in studio city! See our event page!
We connected with Together We Rise and other rotary clubs and donated duffle bags filled with goodies to be given to Pennylane, an organization that cares for 3500 abused and neglected children, youth, and families a month.
In October we held our annual Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton Halloween Picnic, the turn out was fantastic! 
Not to mention our donation drives for Camp Pendleton and other local community organizations!
Here is to 2023!

 Camp Pendleton Halloween Picnic

"Back in October I had the pleasure of volunteering with Studio City & Sherman Oaks Rotary at Camp Pendleton. We met just outside the base, all of our cars packed with the necessities to host a Halloween Picnic for Active Marine Families. Food was cooked and served as lines of families dressed up in their Halloween attire came to be a part of the soiree. Hot Dogs, Chili, Chips, Drinks, Bounce Houses, Face and Pumpkin Painting all with Halloween goodies at the end, a true Halloween Picnic. It was a beautiful experience, one I got to capture in the video below, and would like to share with you. As someone who is new to volunteer work, my takeaway was the impact that my small actions can create, and when you add them on to actions done by other people together, the reverberation is fantastic. What a brilliant way to show up for oneself while serving others and the greater good. My advice going into the New Year, find time to work within your community and outside yourself, you might be surprised by the results. - Volunteer, Brenna Jorgensen, Studio City & Sherman Oaks Rotary

Spring Senior Meals!

The Rotary Club of Studio City-Sherman Oaks helped deliver Spring Cheer to seniors this month!  
We teamed up with Valley Interfaith Council , an organization that provides services for seniors including Home Delivered Meals. They deliver 150 meals each week and this week added a little extra to their deliveries! With Mrs. Tris Caserio Graphic Arts Class from Laurel Hall School, we asked for and received brilliantly designed, thoughtful and fun greeting cards to go with each meal delivered!  Our Rotary Club sweetened the deal with some yummy See’s chocolates! We know this little thought brightened someone’s day!
