Battle of the Bells - Wilshire Rotary Fundraiser

Let the battle begin!!

Come join the celebration at the Wilshire Rotary Christmas tree lot to kick off Wilshire Rotary versus the Lions. While you are enjoying the music and refreshments, you can also purchase your Christmas tree. Come help us raise money to support the Red Shield Community Center?

The Red Shield Community Center is affiliated with the Salvation Army and our club has supported it for many years. Their facility is in the Pico-Union District and is an after-school tutoring and enrichment center that has been in place for over 75 years. It is a refuge for the extremely disadvantaged children it serves, and its director Angel Amezquita is a member of our club and a most successful product of the Red Shield himself.

In February of 2020, L.A. Central Corps relocated its staff and programs back to the west side of the Red Shield property. Since then, the Red Shield has been able to strengthen programs and increase the impact while offering opportunities to learn and grow in sports, technology, and the arts. Additional activities include equipping families, feeding neighbors, loving the elderly, serving veterans, and meeting the greatest needs in our community.

Every dollar will be used to assist as many families as possible. The Red Shield’s goal is to fundraise and collect enough money to aid 400 families with a food box and three toys.

The Battle of the Bells brings hope to provide for each child in need this Holiday Season. Thank you once again for your support and thoughtful contributions.

Battle of the Bells - Wilshire Rotary Fundraiser

We have been very busy at the Christmas tree lot so far this December. We still need volunteers at the WRC Christmas tree lot.  We had a great time celebrating Give a Gift at Robert and Kathleen Barnes' house this past Tuesday. Santa made an appearance and was there spreading happiness and hope. The event was very successful and there were a lot of presents to go around for the children at the Red Shield Community Center.  
 
In addition to the gifts, we are fundraising to provide financial support for the services of the Red Shield Community Center.  The donations so far, have been generous and deeply appreciated.  The challenge is which service club can raise more money, the Rotarians or the Lions.  I think we will give the Lions a big challenge as they try to keep up with our Wilshire Rotarians. So far we have raised over $1,928 and we have time to do even more.  A big thanks to everyone who has donated so far. 
 
Please take a moment and do what you can. Every donation will make a difference for a child in need. As we all know, it has been a tough couple of years for the residents in and around the Pico-Union district.  If you missed the in-person event, we have decided to continue the fundraising online.  We have a big goal in mind, and we want to overachieve. Please take a moment to click the link below and make a donation to help our local community.
