For many years, Richmond Rotary has supported RotaCare Richmond and in these times, the number of people in need of the health clinic is growing. Our very special friend, Rita Moreno, recently spoke about the value of Rotacare in our community.

PERES ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Each year, we raise $100 for each teacher at Peres Elementary School to pay for supplies and everything they need to teach their students virtually. Our efforts impacted 27 teachers this year. Rotarian Erle Brown’s late wife, Phyllis Peres Brown, was the granddaughter of the man who donated the land to house Peres school. After she passed away, Phyllis left Rotary a matching gift of $10,000 to be used to enhance teaching and learning at Peres.
