Menifee Rotary Teams With Habitat for Humanity

The Rotary Club’s long-standing nationwide mission has been to serve their respective communities. Across the globe 34,000 Rotary clubs are working toward a better world, and more simply, a better tomorrow for their neighbors.

The Rotary Club of Menifee joined forces with the Inland Valley Habitat for Humanity and has recently begun working on one of several home revitalization projects right here in Menifee.

When the team completes changes to this particular two story, three-bedroom house, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity, Tammy Marine says, “It will be like a brand-new home when the family moves in.”

Rotary club members volunteered their time to cut down plants, trees, and over grown foliage in and around the home’s yard. Within just a few hours, they had not only cleared the yard but also worked to tear out carpeting throughout the entire house.

“We were so surprised at how much the Rotarians accomplished in only a few hours. We thought we were going to run out of things for them to do,” Marine added.

This is the ninth of seventeen homes purchased by Habitat for Humanity, using Housing and Urban Development Funds, to receive revitalization thus making the residence livable once again.

Those interested in volunteering their time to Habitat for Humanity should contact (951) 296-3362 for upcoming project dates in the Menifee area.
