Mini Van Donated to

Reach Out Morongo Basin

The Yucca Valley Sunset Rotary Club fulfilled its promise of donating a low-mileage Chrysler Minivan to Reach Out Morongo Basin during the club’s Thursday's meeting at the Black Bear Diner. The goal for the Dessert Soiree was to raise $25,000 to purchase a reliable used van for this valuable nonprofit in order to transport their clients to doctors’ appointments, grocery stores, etc.  Sunset Rotary President John Babrowski stated, “Our thanks go to Bob Tenbrook of Yucca Auto Body who was instrumental in finding and negotiating the best value for the van. Also, thanks to the generosity of the community, we exceeded that goal by over $3,000.00.” Additionally, Babrowski stated,   “We are putting the extra funds to good use by allocating $2500.00 to the Boys and Girls Club for physical improvements that the Sunset Rotary Club will oversee in the fall. The rest of the funds will go towards the Miss Yucca Valley Scholarship Pageant that will be held in April of 2025”.

Soriee earmarks an additional $2,500 to  Boys & Girls Club Member Tom toured with B&G  director Mikayla.  Tom determined that we address the following to the best of our ability with the $2.500.
Bathroom counter in both bathrooms need repair. Repair stairs by tightening screws, Light bulbs in the club and some repairs in the kitchen. We could get Behr paint at discount of 30% or Tom might be able to get the paint donated. Our club is looking for a painter that is willing to discount their services or donate their time.
