During its weekly meeting on March 28, the Coronado Rotary Club, in partnership with CAL Private Bank, Coronado, presented a $10,000 donation to The Friends of San Pasqual Academy located in Escondido. The Academy is a first-in-the-nation residential education campus designed specifically for foster teens. It provides young people with a stable, caring home, a quality individualized education, and the skills needed for independent living. The 238-acre campus, with a capacity to serve 184 teens, features individual family-style homes, an on-site, accredited high school, a technology and career information center, recreation fields, a swimming pool, gymnasium and auditorium. The San Pasqual Fire Department is also on campus and provides internship opportunities for the youth. Teens live and learn at the Academy as they prepare for college and/or a career path.
The Coronado Rotary Foundation has provided funding support San Pasqual for many years. The Rotary Club members also provide on-site volunteers through the annual “Rotarians At Work Day.”
