Members of the Sunrise Rotary Club of Plattsburgh joined together to help give back to the community by volunteering at several annual holiday events in 2018.
On November 20th Sunrise Rotarians trimmed a holiday tree, sponsored by the club, to help support the Advocacy Resource Center of Clinton County NY (ARC). Currently over 500 individuals and their families benefit from the wide variety of services provided by ARC, such as vocational programs, community integration, therapeutic intervention and residential options. This year's theme, 'Happy Harvest' was awarded third place by the judges for creativity.
At several times throughout the year Sunrise Rotarians volunteer at the St. Peter's Soup Kitchen, and on December 11th evening, nine club members helped to serve dinner at the soup kitchen at Seton Academy. In December, Sunrise Rotary also donated $1,000 to the St. Peter's Soup Kitchen to provide additional support to local families in need.

Throughout the day on December 15th, seventeen Sunrise Rotarians along with their friends and family, helped ring the bell for donations for The Salvation Army at the Champlain Center Mall. Sunrise Rotarians helped to raise over $900 for The Salvation Army.
