2019 Rotary Day of Service

Join neighbors and friends on Sunday, May 19, 2019 for a day of community service!

Join neighbors and community members for our 2nd annual Rotary Day of Service event happening on Sunday, May 19, 2019 throughout the San Francisco Bay Area!

Rotary Day of Service was created to bring together neighbors and community members together to spend a morning doing service together to help our local communities. This year, our Rotary Day of Service has expanded to different locations in the San Francisco Bay Area, hosted by various Rotary, Rotaract, and Interact Clubs.
