The Rotary Club of McKinney Sunrise has been placing flags in McKinney neighborhoods on patriotic holidays annually for over 15 years. The fundraiser raises thousands of dollars for local and global charities such as the McKinney Education Foundation, McKinney Housing Authority, Polio Plus Campaign, Wheel Chair Foundation, Make A Wish Foundation, Angel Flight, Communities in Schools, YMCA-McKinney, BSA Troops in McKinney, clean water projects in India and Africa, literacy projects in McKinney and Central America, and for disaster relief in the US and around the world.
The flag lease is a donation of $45 per year and the Rotarians and Boy Scout troops do it all for you from building your flag, setting a sleeve in your yard, and delivering and retrieving the flag for each flag holiday. We currently serve neighborhoods in west McKinney. For more information and to see if your neighborhood is one that we serve, go to www.mckinneysunriserotary.org to download an application to mail with your check or pay online with a credit card. But, hurry! The deadline for receiving a flag in time for Independence Day (July 4), Labor Day and Patriot’s Week (Sept 5-12) and Veterans Day (Nov 11) is June 21!
