Aloha WSRC Rotarians and Friends,
Our online Windward Sunrise Rotary Club Zoom meeting is this Tuesday morning (4/21), at 7:15 am! We will use this time to check in with each other, go over what the club has been doing, and hear special guest speaker Ashley Wiberg, clinical social worker and Bobby Benson Center board member! Ashely provides therapeutic interventions for Oahu clients affected by abuse and domestic violence and her agency is interested in partnering with your Windward Sunrise Club for a Mother's Day project. Please e-mail or use the "Contact Us" form for the Zoom meeting log-ins! Our meeting space opens up at 7:00 am, so feel free to come in early as you sip your coffee and view our announcements.
Our small but mighty club was awarded the Fort Shafter Hui's $1,600 grant for our community projects! Mahalo nui loa for believing in the work we do in our Oahu community. This grant will help us provide immediate relief to families in need on our island. We cannot do what we do without selfless sponsorship from amazing community groups. Be sure to check out their website to see the initiatives they’re sponsoring this year!
Want to personally better our community this second? If you'd like to help those in need, here's your chance! Hawaii Food Bank needs Monetary donations, food (drop off at Napa Auto Parts in Kailua), and your help to sort/pack donations.
The Phase II of Rotary Cares About Mental Health at the Windward Community Mental Health Center is tentatively set for May 9th, depending on the State's COVID-19 direction. Due to social distancing, this project will be RSVP-only and has limited space for volunteers. Please reach out to me directly to RSVP with any guests you'd like to bring. More on this at our Zoom meeting on 4/21!
Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, or just need someone to talk with! If you have any photos of your activities during social distancing, feel free to e-mail them to be featured on our social media :) 
In health and wellness,
Brenna Dicks
