The Rotary Club of Beverly Hills held a so-called community unity project on Feb. 7 to collect blankets, toiletries, and other necessities for those in need. The items went to the Church of Good Shepherd and All Saints Beverly Hills, among a few other groups.
“The whole goal here is to have the community come together to help others, it’s completely all about service above self,” Rotary President Elect JR Dzubak, who organized the event along with former President Sharona Nazarian, told the Courier.
The event marked the second time that the Rotary held the blanket drive in front of the Beverly Hills Fire Department, allowing for COVID-safe drop-off of goods. Other civic institutions joined the Rotary in collecting and donating supplies, including Sinai Temple, the Beverly Hills Educational Foundation, and all four Beverly Hills Unified School District schools.
