Rotary!  When you have eyes and boots on the ground in 200 countries, you are the go to guy for any number of issues: earthquakes, floods, and/or ebola. AND, Rotarians embrace opportunities to join together to do together that which they are not able to do alone. This Rotary year alone Escondido Rotarians and Escondido Rotary Foundation have provided $5000 for Hurricane Relief with so much more in the years past. Rotarians giving to The Rotary Foundation are recognized for each $1000 donation of cash & points.  Many are recipients because Rotarians made a gift of recognition.
