District wide Rotary project - Personnel Protective shield assembly

Posted on Apr 03, 2020
Mike Shanahan assembling face shields for medical personnel
 
April 3, 2020 was the start of the district wide project - assembling face shields for our medical workers at the frontline of fighting the Corona Virus pandemic.
 
Our very own Mike Shanahan took to the challenge on this first day and volunteered his time with other Rotarians in District 5320. According to Shanahan:
"Each protective shield takes about 2-3 minutes to assemble but the work is easy to do. Everyone working on the project was wearing protective gear and we each had a work station several feet apart. The goal is to assemble 25,000 shields to deliver to the hospitals on Monday. Each of the 5 assembly centers in OC are hoping to build 5,000 face shields each."

Thank you to all of our healthcare workers for their courage and thank you to everyone who is doing their part in keeping themselves and their loved ones safe.

7th Annual Rotary Housebuild with Bathroom and Septic System

Saturday, February 15, 2020 was made special by a group of 100 Rotarians, in partnership with Corazon, who chose to put their busy lives on hold for one day in order to improve the lives of people they had never met in dramatic and life altering ways. Improvements in their living conditions, their health, their self esteem and their security. Improvements that will have positive effects immediately and for generations yet to come. 
 
The Rotarians who participated in the 7th Annual Rotary Housebuild with Bathroom and Septic System did something all too rare in the world at large. They gave their sweat, time and treasure in a selfless act that held no promise of return other than helping other fellow human beings who are in great need.
