One hundred San Clemente families enjoyed a healthy, wholesome holiday feast with the help of generous community members.
The community came out in droves to help the San Clemente Sunrise Rotary Club collect food on Dec. 20 at Ralphs Market on Camino De Estrella and Albertsons Market, across from the high school. Rotary was also joined by students from San Clemente High School’s Interact service club. Their goal was to provide 60 families from FAM, Laura’s House and Camp Pendleton with the groceries for a full holiday dinner. Due to the generosity of the community, the Rotary Club was able to provide 100 meals, in addition to the 300 meals they provided at Thanksgiving.
The Rotary Club thanks Ralphs and Albertsons for hosting the food drive onsite, the Holiday Inn downtown for allowing club members to sort and box the food for pickup, and the SC Times for helping to get the word out.
