Members of Soroptimist International of Sacramento North participated and collected donations for Run for Courage held in Folsom on Saturday September 27. The main purpose of this walk is to raise awareness of Human Trafficking and to raise funds to restore victims of human trafficking.
This Saturday our annual garage sale will be held in Folsom in conjunction with the Broadstone community garage sale. Our flyer is below so come on out and see what treasures you can't pass up.
The garage sale is one of our fundraisers that support our service grants to the community. All proceeds will be given back to the community. Any items not sold by the end of the day will be donated to Snoline Hospice.
Please come out and visit with us. We will also have refreshments for sale and these funds will also go into the service funds.
On March 25, 2014 our annual March On for Community Service event was held. At this event we invite the organizations who were chosen to receive service grants for projects they requested assistance for.
The organizations receiving service grants were:
People Reaching Out
River Oak Center for Children
We also invited a representative from Wind Youth Services to present them with 50 comfort kits that club members made. This included toiletries and sundry items for homeless youth that use their facility.
The annual Crab and Pasta Feed was held on February 7, 2014 by our club in partnership with the Sacramento Suburban Kiwanis. The hall was filled to capacity with close to 600 hungry customers. Again this year, the key club youth from 3 local high schools volunteered by serving food and helping with the raffle.
