On Veterans Day weekend the East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club will showcase a breathtaking display of hundreds of American Flags in front of the USS Yorktown at Patriots Point. Individuals, businesses, corporations and non-profits can sponsor the flag in honor of a hero of their choice. Together we can engage and inspire our community by reminding us all of the true meaning of Veterans Day - a celebration to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.
The East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club is proud to host this event. Last year alone, our club used fundraising to provide over 300 pairs of shoes for kids in need in partnership with the Mount Pleasant Lunch Rotary Club, partner with Toys for Tots for distribute toys and donate over 100 children's bikes, build a sustainable community garden, complete multiple projects at Saint James Santee Elementary School, and more.
All of the funds raised through the Flags for Heroes program will be used for local community service projects and to support the Charleston Fisher House. To learn more about what this great organization is doing for our veterans and their families, check out their website here.
This mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through our fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders. Drop us a line on our Contact page to learn more about getting involved.
