Eliminating Hunger for People and Pets

Stop Hunger Locally & Abroad

When families in Orange County struggle, pets in Orange County struggle too. Our relationship with South County Outreach helps us deliver thousands of pounds of food each year to pets and their people.  This year we will also package 20,000 meals for shipment to developing economies.

Youth Service Projects

Backpacks, Literacy & Leadership

Every back-to-school season we package and deliver hundreds of new backpacks, filled with mandatory school supplies to families that would otherwise endure this as a heavy financial burden. We encourage literacy in Title 1 schools through a theatrical partnership with Laguna Playhouse and sponsor high school students to attend programs that aid in their quest to become emerging leaders.

Meeting Unmet Needs of United States Veterans

Support for Our Veterans

Irvine Rotary seeded a new veteran's resource program at Irvine Valley College last year and continues to fund veteran scholarships at both Irvine Valley College and Brandman University. Irvine Rotary contributes to the successful transition of veterans to civilian life through projects with Working Wardrobes and other organizations. We sponsor several Marine families for the holidays each year and are developing a series of financial literacy modules aimed at making longer-term improvements in the lives of young veterans an their families.

Clean Water and Sanitation

5 Clean Water Projects in 4 Countries

Clean water is a basic human need. When people have access to clean water, they live healthier and more productive lives. With access to clean water, children spend their childhoods at school and play. Yet, at least 3,000 children die each day from diseases caused by unsafe water. Rotarians build wells, install rainwater harvesting systems, and teach community members how to maintain the new infrastructure. This year and next year, Irvine Rotary aims to extend clean water and sanitation access to over 30,000 people in India, Guatemala, Mexico, and Kenya.

Dental and Eye Clinics Charity Dog Walk Orange County February 25 Irvine Rotary

Disease Prevention & Treatment

Heart Surgeries + Dental & Eye Clinics

Irvine Rotary is currently engaged in a global project to fund over 40 surgeries for children born with heart defects. Four surgeries have already been performed. For the past 20 years, we have partnered with and supported Dental Care for Children in providing over $5,000,000 of free dental services to the people of Orange County, Mexico, and Haiti. More recently, we have piggy-backed on our dental care missions in Mexico to deliver several hundred eye-exams and eye-glasses to kids, adults and elderly persons that would otherwise struggle to perform everyday tasks.

Let's Make a Real Difference Together

House Builds, Scholarships & Training

Every year, we build at least one home for a family in Mexico and part of the cost of that home is allocated to send the children living in that home to elementary school. This year we also are funding completion of an information technology training institute in Uganda and have provided financial support to two orphanages (Mexico & South Korea).  Locally, we host an annual Vocational Skills Summit for college students to learn how to network, interview, and develop strong resumes.
