Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
Some of our initiatives current and past include:
RFTStars Program, "Trashbags to Backpacks Program" is a program that provides the homeless community with a backpack filled with essential items (hygiene, food, underwear, socks).
The Food Pantry program assists clients not only with hygiene, clothes and other necessities but food as well since "Eating is not a want, it's a necessity!"
Provides those 3 years through 18 years of age, the ability to experience inspiring stargazing through education on astronomy and Night Stargazing Events.
Rev Susan Holden, an ordained elder, serves as a campus pastor for Desert Skies United Methodist Church. Her family is originally from Nashville, TN. Susan is especially pleased to be in Vail because, "even as a fast-growing area, there is clearly a culture of care for people and concern for quality of community".

One of Rotary’s most colorful traditions is members’ exchanging club banners. Clubs display their own decorative banners at meetings and district events, and Rotarians who travel to other countries often take these banners to exchange with the clubs they visit.
