Hawthorne via the Hawthorne Community Causes Committee (HCCC) recently awarded a donation to the Rotary Club of Fairfield.

Joshua Laraby, the Rotary Club of Fairfield immediate past president said, “The Rotary Club of Fairfield appreciates Hawthorne’s continued support.”

Hawthorne CEO Jessica Hawthorne-Castro said, “It is rewarding to support the Rotary Club of Fairfield in their service to local children and youth in various capacities.”

The Rotary Club of Fairfield is a chapter of Rotary International, an organization whose mission is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders. The Rotary Club of Fairfield is known for supporting their annual Rotary Scholarship Program for local high school seniors. Most recently they have also been raising funds, with other local organizations, for the Shop with a Hero program, where children in need ride along with firefighters and police officers to local stores to purchase Christmas gifts for their family members. The Rotary Club of Fairfield has also been providing support for new playground equipment for Howard Park in Fairfield.

The Hawthorne Community Committee (HCCC) is part of Hawthorne’s larger Corporate Social Responsibility program which makes contributions to the community as one of its initiatives. The committee was inspired by founder Tim Hawthorne’s dedication to the community over that past few decades and made possible by the continued generosity of Jessica Hawthorne-Castro. The HCCC is responsible for the usage of the agency’s monthly allocated community charitable contributions and selections.
