FALLBROOK – During the month of February, the Fallbrook Vintage Car Club concentrated on giving back to the local community by providing donations to four organizations.
The car club presented a donation to the La Paloma PTA which is currently in a fund raising mode to help offset the school’s budget cuts. The donation will go toward providing new technology, programs, classroom supplies and miscellaneous equipment which will enhance the quality of education afforded the students attending the school.
Responding to a request for financial support by the Fallbrook Girls Gym Booster Club, the car club presented a donation to the Fallbrook High School girls gymnastic team. The donation will help cover equipment replacement costs (e.g. beam mats, back handspring trainers, chalk, mat tape, etc.). The girls gym team is open to all female students at the high school, including varsity and junior varsity gymnasts.
The Fallbrook Vintage Car Club also made a donation to the Todd Plischke Memorial Fund at the REINS therapeutic horsemanship center to enable less fortunate disabled children and adults to participate in the wonderful, therapeutic horsemanship program.
A donation was presented to the Fallbrook Beautification Alliance by the car club recently with its intended use in beautifying Fallbrook. The community is enhanced by the attractive plantings in the median strip and throughout the main center of the village, which are enjoyed by residents and visitors alike. Without private funding, the medians would fall back in the hands of the County which has not supported maintaining them.
Local non-profit groups in need of financial support may contact the Fallbrook Vintage Car Club to see if they qualify for a donation. Visit www.fallbrookvintagecarclub.org (print out and complete the page for donation applications) or call (760) 723-1181.
