Rotary is about Changing Lives. Each Rotary year, RB Sunrise changes lives of people locally and internationally.  We change lives by direct action when we have a service project such as building a house in Mexico with volunteers from our club.  We also change lives  by our financial support of charitable organizations whose mission is to provide health, welfare or educational opportunities locally and internationally.
This is a list of the organizations RB Sunrise Rotary supported in 2016-2017. Support for these organizations was made possible by the   funds raised in our Rancho BEERnardo fundraising event that was held in October 2016.
