CLEANUP DAY AT ABRAXAS
The Church at Rancho Bernardo is partnering with the staff and students at Abraxas High School to improve their campus from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 16. Abraxas has minimal parent/community support, resulting in students who desperately need encouragement and positive relationships.
There are three ways you can help:
- Pitch in to landscape, print murals, re-do the outdoor weight room, update bathrooms or facilitate a breakfast or lunch for the volunteers.
- Donate: Individuals and companies are encouraged to donate gift cards for groceries and other needed items, gently-used clothing, computers, weight equipment, etc.
- Provide long-term relationships as a teacher’s aid, mentor, or help with events like the career fair and grad night.
For more and to get involved call the Church of RB at 858-592-2434.

POWAY-SCRIPPS ROTARY AT RONALD McDONALD HOUSE
The Rotary Club of Poway-Scripps fed chicken, rice and a vegetable to 172 people staying at Ronald McDonald House last Thursday evening. The facility provides a place to stay for families with a child being treated at Rady Children's Hospital across the street. They are often too stressed to even think about food and appreciate a hot meal. You don't get the full impact until you have a child or grandchild of your own being treated as I have in the past two weeks.
