The Rotary Club of Carlsbad recently released substantial donations to various North San Diego County organizations as part of the Day of Giving -  a day of giving and unity.
Ava Payne, President of Rotary Carlsbad said “I’m in awe of the commitment, passion, and selflessness our four Day of Giving honorees demonstrated, stepping up through their organizations to assist those unable to help themselves.  A noble purpose resulting in a profound and prodigious impact.”
Jeffrey Sitcov, President and Founder of Doors of Change said “Doors of Change is so appreciative of Carlsbad Rotary for their generous donation to help San Diego Homeless Youth get off the streets and live productive lives. Since 2001 over 2,200 Homeless Youth have done this because of the help of many organizations like Carlsbad Rotary. "
Sue McLeod, founder of Got Your Back San Diego, added, “Our existence heavily relies on generous donations from reputable philanthropic organizations like the Rotary Club of Carlsbad.  They have, in large part, allowed us to move forward in these trying times.  Our mission of providing food to school age children conveys to them that someone cares and that children matter #youmatter.  Thanks Rotary!” 
The Rotary Club of Carlsbad made substantial donations to the following North San Diego County groups who have seen increased demand along with additional challenges resulting from last year’s pandemic: 
Scott McClatchey, Community Service Director for Rotary Carlsbad said “Day of Giving is an annual tradition where our club recognizes local charitable organization’s doing amazing work in the community. This year’s program was particularly inspirational because of how difficult the past year has been, yet through it all these four organizations pivoted in order to continue their mission serving as a lifeline for our community’s most vulnerable population.”
