Community Service Projects
The Rotary Club of Coronado conducts service projects across Rotary International's five Avenues of Service: Club Service, Vocational Service, Community Service, Youth Service, and International Service. We are able to finance our service projects with the following fundraising activities:
|Support to the Military
Our club is actively engaged in supporting various Military programs in the San Diego area.Over 50% of our annual Low Tide Ride and Stride proceeds are allocated to military support programs. This includes the Comprehensive Combat and Complex Casualty (C5) at Balboa Naval Hospital, Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station, Fisher House, the Armed Services YMCA, the SEAL Foundation, and Wounded Warrior Tennis Camp. We also host military servicemen/women at our annual Golf Tournament fundraiser and provide support to military families in various ways including support for Big Brothers/Big Sisters and United Through Reading. Workshops for Warriors is a recent addition to our military support which involves providing specialized job training for wounded warriors and other veterans who are transitioning from the military to civilian life.
|Fisher House Dinners
Our club provides dinners to families of Wounded Warriors staying at Fisher House at Balboa Hospital on the first Thursday of each month. Italian Dinners are complete with salads, breads & homemade chocolate chip cookies for the 36 guests at the two Fisher Houses.
San Pasqual Academy
We support San Pasqual Academy which is a first-in-the-nation residential education campus designed specifically to provide foster teens with a stable, caring home, a quality, individualized education, and the skills needed for independent living.
Barrio Logan College Institute (BLCI)
Our club supports the pursuit of higher education for students who are traditionally at-risk and underrepresented in college through this after-school program that begins in the third grade.
As an adjunct to our support to BLCI, our club also supports Outdoor/Outreach which provides outdoor physical fitness and teambuilding experiences to at-risk youth and families in the Barrio Logan area. This program provides youth with the support, relationships, resources and opportunities they need to become successful adults.
|Coronado SAFE Foundation
Our club supports the new SAFE Foundation which is more than substance abuse prevention. SAFE’s new direction is designed to protect the health and well-being of children in their entirety through programs that support and challenge youth to develop healthy bodies, strong minds, and bright spirits.
|Health Care Support
Each year our club supports the Coronado Hospital Foundation, Relay For Life and other health-related initiatives.
We support Boy Scout Eagle projects and Girl Scout Gold projects, as well as camper scholarships and supplies.
4th of July Parade
Our club sponsors a summer Concert-in-the-Park each year and Coronado Rotarians turn out in force for this seasonal event in Spreckels Park.
Feed The Needy
|Community Sports Programs
