Helping Marine Families
Holiday Baskets for Marine Families.
December 18, 2021
The 29 Palms Marine Base is the pride of the Morongo Basin. Many of are Marine families are separated from their loved ones while on duty overseas. Sunset Rotary plays a small part in helping these families have a brighter Christmas. Hams, mashed potatoes, assorted veggies, fruits, and of course a desert are distributed to families through the help of the Armed Services YMCA just before the Christmas Holiday.
Shred it- Forget it
Shred It Forget It Event
Never know what to do with those outdated important papers? We have a funraiser to help. We have partnered with a professional shredding company that destroys (shreds) you documents on site. A five dollar charge for a banker size box helps Rotary with community projects through out the Morongo Basin.
