USC Union’s Rotaract Club hosted a fundraiser on Valentine’s Day to raise money for the Friends of The Union Animal Shelter. The club sold “LoveGrams” that consisted of a carnation, Valentine card and candy. With the help of the Union Rotary Club and a generous donation of carnations from Gwinn’s Florist, the club was able to raise $300.00 for the animal shelter!
The Rotary Club of Union sponsors the Union High School Interact Club and is proud to sponsor the Rotaract Club now, as well. The Rotary club will offer support, opportunities, and project work. Rotary members are business and professional leaders that make up a global network of 1.2 million Rotarians that belong to more than 34,000 Rotary Clubs in over 200 countries.
Rotaract clubs bring together college students to exchange ideas with leaders in the community, develop leadership and professional skills, and have fun through service. Rotaract caters to college age students to help them evolve with their leadership and professional skills to use after they graduate. There are currently 250,792 Rotaractors in 10,904 Rotaract clubs in 184 countries in the world.
