During the Holidays
San Andreas Rotary administrates the Santa's Express Program started by Jay & Claire Quick

Volunteers spend Thursday packing all the food into bags and carts to have ready for distribution on Saturday.
Each car gets approximately 10 Holiday "Baskets/Families"
to deliver throughout the
County. Approximately 200 Holiday Baskets. Each Family
gets a Frozen Turkey and all
the other ingredients for a
Full Holiday Feast including
Fresh Fruit, Canned Goods, Stuffing, Bread/Rolls, Pie, etc.
A Christmas to Remember
Rain or Shine, usually rain, San Andreas Rotary (Lynette Martinez) along with other Community Service Organizations, spend two days manning a number of booths throughout the County to collect money for winter clothing for underprivileged kids in our community. Each child nominated by teachers
and school staff receive $100 to spend on
a supervised shopping spree. Items purchased are strictly limited to winter clothing such as jackets, socks, sweaters, etc.
Christmas Tree Lighting
The Christmas Tree is located on Hospital property on Mountain Ranch Road across from the DMV/CHP Building.
San Andreas Rotary each year teams up with Mark Twain Medical Center with the San Andreas Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony.
