Patricia Caristo - Bridges for Victims of Violent Death

Helping Victims of Violent Death

Did you know that for every person taken by violence, there are at least 10 others left behind to deal with the aftermath.
Our very special guest speaker this past Thursday was Patricia Caristo, Executive Director of Bridges for Victims of Violent Death (NIA Resource Center for Victims of Violent Death), whose mission is to bridge the gaps in victim services to advocate for the many living victims left behind after violent death.

Meals on Wheels Volunteers Needed

Want to brighten someone's day once a month?  The Rotary Del Sol Meals and Wheels team has been delivering meals and much needed personal contact people in the poorest areas of Albuquerque.  We need more volunteers, contact Bruce Bortner for more information on how you can help.

Bring Your Unwrapped Toys

Elizabeth Montoya is collecting unwrapped toys for an event with the Bair Foundation which helps to recruit foster families. 

How many toys can we bring next Thursday?  Let's try to fill up President Brad's truck...

RDS Supports Third Sewing Center in Nepal

Christine Glidden and Sudip, from Nepal Rotary visited the location of third sewing center  supported by our Rotary Global Grant at the Sindhuli school for the deaf. 
The students were incredibly gracious, and very respectful.
The campus facility is basic, but kept very orderly and clean.
The students, their parents and the principal are very excited about the sewing training that will give students practical skills that they can apply into their futures. The training should begin within the next two months.
The volleyball, net, and the volleyballs and basketballs are in pretty bad shape. Christine hopes the club can raise some extra money to buy new ones.
