WOODLAND COMMUNITY HARVEST
Service Opportunity Benefitting Yolo Food Bank
Volunteers needed to pick fruit & veggies. In 2014 WCH donated over 30,000lbs of fruits and vegetables to local food banks (over 100,000lbs since 2010 inception) . WCH is a non-profit organization (Tax ID: 47-2585519). During peak season of citrus, December-late March, harvest 2-3 times per week; usually twice on weekday mornings and once on the weekend mornings; about 2-3 hours per session. Also harvest various times during summer. All local area locations. Great outdoor activity which can involve family helpers.
Interested Rotarians are asked to submit email address to Dexter Quiggle (Luna Vista Rotary) at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive emailed notification of upcoming harvests. Questions? Contact Dexter @ 916 769-7193 or Kris Kristensen.
Help us make this the 'go to place' for all your Rotary info. Send comments or suggestions to Kris Kristensen, 530 662 4827, or Gary Wegener, 530 666 4098
Rotary Club of Woodland
Local and International Service is our goal...
The Rotary Club of Woodland is a service organization represented by some of the most influential and respected leaders of our community. Our goal and reason for being is to improve the lives of those in our community and the world – and have a little fun and fellowship along the way.
Club Members are a part of a worldwide organization interested in world peace, understanding and most notably leading the effort to eliminate polio from the planet. The “End Polio Now” effort of Rotary has eliminated Polio from all but 3 countries and all 3,000 clubs in the world are committed and working to end Polio in the next few years – we are “This Close”!
Locally our Club sponsors leadership camps and provides scholarships to local students, provides a free BBQ Lunch to seniors each year, supports community projects and promotes community awareness and education for our Members through interesting and informational programs each week.
Together we can...
