Some of the Soroptimist ladies attended the Marysville YMCA's Annual Campaign kick-off. It was a special treat to have one of our young ladies from our mentoring program, Sinai from Cedarcrest Middle School, share her story of how the Girls of Promise program has impacted her life! This mentoring program is a partnership between the Marysville YMCA and the Marysville Soroptimists and is currently offered in three of our local middle schools.
Quang Nam Social Sponsor Center in Hoi An Vietnam
The Soroptimist International of Marysville and the Marysville Sunrise Rotary partnered together to donate to the Quang Nam Social Sponsor Center in Hoi An Vietnam. Members from both clubs and a few friends visited the center on a recent trip to Vietnam.
This is a center for orphaned and disabled children and senior adults that do not have anyone to care for them. The clubs purchased toys, 800lbs of rice, vitamins, balm for aches and pains, 7 cases of noodles, candy, dragon fruit, kumquats, green oranges, mangos and toilet paper for the kiddos and the adults! Sherry and her friend Lois came ready for some balloon fun and the kids loved it!
Because of the partnership between the Rotary and Soroptimist we were able to help many residents of this center! As a Soroptimist I was blessed to be one of the members that participated in this international visit and giving opportunity!!
Thank you to both clubs for your generous donations!!
