Rotary Club of Mandarin was established in 1975 and is proud of our forty-three years of accomplishments in the community promoting “Service Above Self.” With the valued support of our local businesses, we have been able to provide significant financial support to charities doing great work – both locally and internationally.
With your help, over the last few years, we have been able to provide the Mandarin division of Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department with seven thermal imaging cameras, grants to K-9s for Warriors, donations to Polio Plus, a van to the Mandarin Food Bank at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, and thousands of dollars to dozens of other local charities.
This year, in conjunction with our Annual (Online) Auction, the Rotary Club of Mandarin will be hosting our first Race to Feed the Hungry 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run, which will be organized by 1st Place Sports, and held on Saturday, April 30th at Mandarin Presbyterian Church. Both the Auction and the Race will be primarily for the benefit of the Mandarin Food Bank at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church and the Daily Bread Food Pantry at Mandarin Presbyterian Church (some proceeds will be reserved for other non-profit charities in the Mandarin Area, Rotary International’s efforts to end Polio worldwide, and numerous grants to local charities).
