Believe it or not, the El Paso Rotary Club has been providing events, entertainment and support at various levels to the El Paso community for an incredible 108 years.

In all those years they have been a help to countless people and organizations while also giving folks throughout the Borderland fun stuff to do. Donating is all well and good but if you can have some fun while you're at it, it's a win-win. Right?

Some of the things that benefit from their support include:

  • Rotacare. A fee clinic that offers health care services to El Pasoans are under or "un" insured, Mexican nationals, migrants and others as well as offering them assistance finding ongoing care.
  • Scholarships. Quinn Scholarships are offered by the EP Rotary Club to students who have met certain requirements.
  • Youth Clubs. The Rotary Youth Club along with the Rotary's Youth Leadership Awards and "Interact" are a few of the ways that they help, encourage and support El Paso's young 'uns.
