We Support Our CommunityRotary Support for Local Non-Profit Organizations
The Sunrise Rotary Club’s activities and contributions have provided support for numerous non-profit organizations in El Paso and the surrounding region.
Moms on Board
Sunrise Rotary is excited to partner with Moms on Board (MOB) on the All Abilities Playground Project at Ascarate Park.
This all-inclusive play area being built with El Paso County, who has secured grant funding through Texas Parks and Wildlife to fund the project with matching funds raised by MOB will be located at Ascarate Park. The project includes a destination all-inclusive play area.
The area will include different activities, such as a dino-dig, a music garden, sensory tunnels, and other fun stuff where kids and adults of all abilities come together to have fun, be active, and play.
Sunrise Rotary is sponsoring the music garden area with a $30,000 contribution over a 3-year period.
Ronald McDonald House
Ronald McDonald House Charities of El Paso is a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization that has provided thousands of families for over 32 years with temporary lodging and support services while their seriously ill children received medical attention in El Paso. The majority of families we serve come from the surrounding areas including West Texas, Southern New Mexico and Northern Mexico.
Kelly Center for Hunger Relief
We are dedicated to our mission of providing nutritious food to the food insecure of El Paso County. Every month we provide approximately 4,500-5,000 boxes of food that go to feed between 15,000-16,000 people (1/3 of which are under 18 years of age).
YMCA Community Garden
Sunrise Rotary Club of El Paso, alongside Northeast Rotary Club of El Paso, has partnered to revitalize the community garden for YMCA with the emphasis on fighting hunger in our community. We embrace Rotary’s and YMCA’s goal of supporting programs that provide healthy foods and develop sustainable solutions to food insecurity. Creating a GreenHouse from a High Tunnel frame, putting in a watering system and planting fruit trees at the Bowling Family YMCA fulfills that Mission.
Center Against Sexual & Family Violence
CASFV provides confidential assistance, educational programs and most importantly, hope to families in need.
YWCA Transitional Living Center
The face of homelessness is changing, with women and children becoming the fastest growing portion of the homeless population. YWCA El Paso del Norte Region’s Sara McKnight Transitional Living Center provides a bridge to successful independence for women who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. A large percentage of TLC residents are survivors of domestic, sexual, or other forms of violence.
Child Crisis Center of El Paso
The Child Crisis Center of El Paso’s (CCCEP) main program is the Circle of Love Nursery and Children’s Shelter, which provides 24/7 emergency shelter for up to 31 children, ages newborn through 13 years for families experiencing a crisis.
Armed Services YMCA
The ASYMCA of El Paso strongly believes all service members and their families deserve support, enrichment and recognition. Our mission is geared towards the military members and families of Fort Bliss, White Sands Missile Range and Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico who need our support.
