The generosity of our Rincon Rotary Club members continue great support to our community. On behalf of our members, President Steve and Mike Esparza delivered 168 No-Slip Socks for the Veterans who are patients at the Tucson VA Hospital. Pictured with Steve and Mike is a wonderful lady by the name of Cathi Starr; a Veteran herself, who sponsored and supported our Club's visit last week on 5 February 2021. Another great lady by the name of Sandy Pedigo (a Veteran) made the sign that Mike and Steve are holding.
Our club participated in Rotary Global Grant #2096305 to provide clean water and functioning bathrooms and sanitation facilities to a little village in the mountains of Guatemala. The first phase was the distribution of portable water filters by EcoFiltro (made in Guatemala) to the families in El Jute, Guatemala. The next phase, started in November 2020, includes the construction of new bathrooms.
