Staff Appreciation Breakfast
Everyone needs to be appreciated. Central East Rotary Club has sponsored Appreciation Breakfasts for the staff of Serendipity Center. Each staff person is recognized for the accomplishments at Serendipity Center. Each staff person has special talents that reflect the ability to help and support students with intense challenges who cannot attend a traditional school. The success stories of students at Serendipity Center are numerous and heart-warming. Our Central East Rotary Club appreciates all the hard work and dedication of the staff at Serendipity Center, as they collectively search for ways to make our community a better place for all of us.
Holiday Food Bags
It is hard to think of families in our community who experience hunger during the Holidays. For many of the students, school meals are a major source of nutrition. Each year, our Central East Portland Rotary members search the area for food donations that go to needy families during the Holiday Season, when school is not in session. The small donation of food baskets helps with a few meals to help bring a little cheer to families during the holiday season.
Building Maintenance - Whenever it needs it, our club donates their time and skills to paint the Serendipity Center and perform any general maintenance work which needs repair,
