How We Give Back
 

Fighting Hunger & Feeding Hope

Prestonwood members packed and delivered to a TangoTab dropoff, individual pre-packed lunch bags. During the pandemic, this was a way of safely giving back to those who were in need.  This is an ongoing program and offers each organization a chance to End Hunger one action at a time.  
 

Providing Clean Water

Prestonwood Rotary partnered with The Rotary Club of Montego Bay to provide water containment tanks to five elementary schools in Jamacia. The tanks provide water storage that greatly assists with the daily functioning of the school including water for kitchen activities as well as the bathrooms.
 

Planting Trees in Our Community 

Shade in Texas is extremely important, especially for our youth.  PRC planted trees to providing shade a restful place for two local schools, Vogel Alcove and Prestonwood Elementary as well as a the non-profit, Equest.

Kids with Special Needs Take to the Skies – On Saturday, October 30, Mesquite Metro Airport hosted over 100 children and their parents for a Fly Day with free activities, food, and an opportunity to co-pilot an airplane.   The mission of Challenge Air for Kids & Friends is to build confidence and self-esteem in children and youth with special needs through the gift of flight.  Challenge Air was able to host 5 events across the country this year with Mesquite being the last one until 2022.  Area pilots donate their time, fuel, and aircraft while local organizations sponsor the event to create an environment of inclusion for these children and their families.   Special thanks to the Prestonwood Rotary Club for being a long-term partner by providing funding and volunteers for the Mesquite Fly Day! 
See you in 2022!
