Photo's with Easter Bunny

Our Annual Easter Egg hunt brought hundred of families to Valentine Park on Saturday, April 13th.  We love being a part in bringing families and friends together for some old fashion community fun. The Orange City Fire Department delivered the Easter Bunny Safely to Valentine Park where he gave the OK to begin the hunts! All of the children enjoyed  crafting, country games, bounce house, and  a chance to meet the Easter Bunny himself.

Happy New Year and a HUGE Thank you to all of our supporters!

We are incredibly grateful for everyone who supported Operation Santa...what a difference you made!!

The Sorosis Club’s mission – the very reason we exist – is to contribute to the betterment of our community and promote the welfare of our youth. Our Operation Santa program is our greatest annual benefit and would not be possible without the support of our community. 

Choosing what organization to donate to at Christmas time is not always easy and we are so grateful you chose to donate to Operation Santa. The combined contributions we received provided for over 100 families and Senior Citizens in our community. Families received boxes filled with non-perishable foods along with a turkey and all the trimmings for a Christmas dinner. We provided Christmas presents for all of the children along with stocking stuffers, books and/or games. Every effort was made to provide these children with their “wishes” for Christmas. Your donation helped to promote hope and happiness to those in need. We cannot think of a better way to celebrate the magic of Christmas. On behalf of our club members and volunteers who have made Operation Santa possible, thank you.

You can read more about our organization and our initiatives – and your important part in it – on our website by logging in at http://sorosiscluboforangecity.com. You can also find us on Facebook where you can find our current events information.
