Volunteers Needed - Salvation Army Bell Ringing - December 5

Fellow Rotarians,

Our date for this year’s Phoenix Rotary 100 Salvation Army Bell Ringing is 
Thursday, December 5th at the same locations we had last year.

A huge thank you to all of the wonderful Rotarians that have assisted in prior years. Co-chair Ralph Tapscott has probably had the opportunity to ring the bell with at least a dozen of you and has enjoyed every minute of it! Jim Nelson has agreed to help Ralph co-chair the event this year. A BIG thank you Jim, Ralph is thankful for your assistance.

Phx Rotary 100 Career-Community Award of Merit - Oct 16th, 2015

Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor Wins Prestigious Phoenix Rotary 100 Career-Community Award of Merit

Phoenix Rotary 100 presented the Honorable Justice Sandra Day O’Connor with the club's prestigious and coveted Career-Community Award of Merit in memory of Phoenix Mayor John Driggs, who was also a member of Phoenix Rotary 100 in October, 2015. 

The Career-Community Award of Merit is given to a person who has achieved distinguished honors in both his or her career AND in his or her community. Phoenix Rotary 100 selects recipients who have accomplished both, as did former Mayor John Driggs. Justice O’Connor is highly deserving of this recognition, as she was the first female Justice to serve on the United States Supreme Court after a distinguished law career in Arizona. She was an elected official and judge in Arizona, prior to President Reagan selecting her to the US bench.

Project C.U.R.E.

Help pack medical supplies at Project C.U.R.E. The building is a warehouse located at 2100 W 14th Street, Tempe, 85281. Park on the east side and enter through the southeast door.

Project C.U.R.E.’s Cargo program delivers semi-trailer-sized cargo containers carrying medical donations to under-resourced hospitals, clinics and community health centers in developing countries. We manage a complex inspection, inventory and logistics process that annually places millions of dollars worth of medical supplies and modern equipment directly into the hands of doctors and nurses so they can provide quality care to their patients, many of whom are women and young children.

Project C.U.R.E. collaborates with community partners in each country to develop a high-level understanding of the scope of need. Our thorough, on-site assessment process ensures that every container delivered will meet the specific needs of the recipient hospital or clinic, equipping the medical staff with life-saving tools to improve diagnosis, treatment and care. Each 40' container delivers $400,000 worth of medical supplies and equipment on average, increasing access to healthcare for the most vulnerable populations in the world.

Hermosillo Wheelchair Distribution

Every now and then members of Phoenix Rotary 100 get together with other Rotarians from around the district and deliver wheelchairs to folks who need them in Hermosillo, Mexico. Quite often, our luncheon speakers are shown our appreciation by a donation of a wheelchair in their name to this worthwhile ongoing project.
