Welcome to San Gabriel Rotary,

 

Rotary is a leadership organization made up of local business, professionals and community leaders.

We meet regularly, get to know each other, form friendships and through that, we’re able to get things done in our community.

 

The Rotary Club of San Gabriel invites you to make new friendship and business contacts that will have an immediate impact on you for a lifetime. Through Rotary we will make a difference locally and internationally working with our community leaders, sharing our professional experiences  and resources with people in need so they can better themselves and their families.

 

We invite you to take a look around our site and find out more about Rotary.  We meet on Wednesdays at various times and venues. Please visit our Calendar for information on weekly meetings, programs and services.

About the business:

Building Community Relations

The Arcadia Police Foundation (APF) is an independent, community-based non-profit organization dedicated to promoting public safety by supporting the Arcadia Police Department (APD). Funds raised by APF are directed towards helping develop and implement new resources and programs at APD.

Founded in 2016, the APF has a two-fold mission to: a) promote public safety by tasing funds to support the APD, and b) build deeper community relations between all residents and business leaders within Arcadia. In a short period of time the APF has helped to bring back the K-9 unit with the addition of K-9 officers Zoli and Kota and their handlers, supporting multiple arrests, drug seizures, and providing bomb-sniffing duties in Arcadia and surrounding cities. We also attend events including APD’s Coffee with a Cop as well as our Dim Sum with a Detective event in order to answer questions and encourage our fellow residents to get involved.

We welcome Arcadia residents and members of our business community to help support APF in  any way possible, whether that is through a financial donation or by donating your time and expertise. Together we can support APD in keeping Arcadia a wonderful place to live, work, and play.

About the business:

Foothill Unity Center is a place of real hope and possibilities for people in crisis throughout the San Gabriel Valley-offering food, temporary shelter, case management, transportation, referrals and a variety of health services for low-income and homeless people in eleven communities in Los Angeles County.

Foothill Unity Center was founded in 1980 by Josephine Anderson in a borrowed church closet in Monrovia, California, and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 1991. Since the beginning, it has been a continuous source of services for  qualified low-income families and people in crisis.  Our record of service has helped us to earn Federal designation as a Community Action Agency for the Foothill Area, and we are also known as a lean operation-with an average of 94% or more of every dollar donated going to programs for the past ten years.

The Center has received major support and recognition from community leaders and organizations, including several distinguished awards for its work in the community. The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank (LARF) considers the Center to be the top food pantry in the County, recognizing it with both the LARF Community Spirit Award and the coveted Tony Collier Award for “leadership in the war against hunger.”  The Center has also received the Spirit of Humanitarianism Award from the Volunteer Center of San Gabriel Valley, the Community Achievement – Torch Award from the 48th District Schools Involvement Program, and the Hunger Fighter Award from the California Hunger Action Coalition for its dedication and commitment to ending hunger in California.
