Soroptimist International of Loomis Basin is one of many clubs in 120 countries throughout the world working to make a difference in the lives of women and girls. We work in tandem with our Region, Federation and International organizations to invest in dreams to create opportunity through education. SI Loomis Basin was formed in 1974 and has continued to support our mission through the years. Our tradition of international service began in 1921 when a group of service minded women established Soroptimist International of Alameda County.
Our club consists of women of all ages, brought together by our passion to make our local and global communities a better place. Calling numbers at our annual Tostada Bingo and participating in community festivals allows us to provide funding for many local organizations and causes. Additionally, the club uses other fundraisers such as selling Olive Oil or making masks during the pandemic to raise funds for college scholarships and grants for K-8 teachers. The club delivers the Soroptimist Dream It Be It career exploration program to young women in Koinonia Group Homes in Loomis as well as yoga and self awareness presentations. Our club works closely with the Loomis Chamber of Commerce and other organizations to support the Senior LIFE Center, Loomis Christmas Basket, Placer Food Bank, and Days for Girls.
Soroptimists participate in many local events. You will see us serving lunch to our area seniors at the Loomis L.I.F.E. Center several times a year, walking for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life and providing refreshments at the Loomis Easter Egg Hunt. Just look for the ladies having all the fun and you’ll find us!
You’ll meet some the fantastic women who are currently working to make a difference.
