Senior Volunteer Patrol receives donation from car club

FALLBROOK – At a recent Hot Summer Nites event in downtown Fallbrook, the Fallbrook Vintage Car Club (FVCC) presented a cash donation to the Fallbrook Sheriff’s Senior Volunteer Patrol in appreciation of their efforts in supporting the community.

The Fallbrook Sheriff’s Senior Volunteer Patrol has been in operation since 1996, and its duties have steadily increased over time. Current duties include making free security checks of citizen’s homes while they are on vacation, conducting daily telephone calls and weekly visits to You Are Not Alone (YANA) program participants, school patrols, and numerous other internal tasks for the Sheriff’s department.

During the course of the year the patrol will check approximately 2,400 homes, make about 16,000 YANA contacts and donate approximately 16,000 hours of volunteer service to the community.

The Fallbrook Vintage Car Club is a social organization of about 80 members and their partners. In addition to monthly meetings, the organization sponsors an annual car show featuring hundreds of vintage vehicles. Proceeds from the show allow the club to support local charities like the Sheriff’s Senior Volunteer Patrol throughout the year.
