History of Allen Sunrise

Rooted in Allen, TX since 1997, our Rotary Club is a center of service, whose diverse members are professionals in both the world of business & health care, retirees, and community leaders  with service in their hearts, people of action working together to make lasting change both in their community & internationally.  Our Rotarians volunteer for several service-impacting projects and fundraisers* that support education, contribute to eradicating Polio worldwide, promote basic elementary literacy and help those who are either without food, water, or live in poverty. Through fellowship in each endeavor, we connect with neighbors, friends, and local leaders to problem solve, inspire, and rise by lifting others who are less fortunate in our Allen community, the true beneficiary.
