Thank you for joining the Rotary Club of Maple Valley as we help our social service organizations make our community whole following the pandemic. Your dollars will support the activities of our club as we do some heavy lifting with hands-on projects as well as funding the efforts of the Maple Valley Food Bank & Emergency Services, the Greater Maple Valley Community Center, the Black Diamond Community Center, Vine Maple Place, and Backpack Buddies of Maple Valley.

Our biggest fundraising event is our annual auction. This year, like everything else, it will look much different than in years past.

The planning includes a virtual auction on September 25th with the proceeds benefiting our local community service organizations. We have reached out to those community service organizations asking them what the priorities will be in the next couple of years with the seriousness of this pandemic. Here is what we heard:

• Keep families in their homes by providing rent/mortgage and utilities
• Daily food assistant for all ages including summer lunch programs and holiday meals
• Support senior citizens in their own homes to age in place
• Facility expansions and repairs to better serve their current and future clients
• Mobile services such as laundry, showers, intervention specialists including mental health support
• Funding of operations to sustain the organizations, the clients and community groups they serve
