For well over a century we have had a philanthropic mission. Although it sometimes changes based on needs and interests, we passionately continue this work. In its earliest days The Shakespeare Club recognized the needs of children who suffered abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment and established a shelter program for teenage girls. It acquired the land for and built Rosemary’s Cottage in 1920, and still actively supports it today. We also work very hard to provide annual college scholarships to a graduating senior from each of the Pasadena High Schools. We generously and joyously provide Christmas toys for Friends of Foster Children. We visit Villa Esperanza monthly, assist Ronald McDonald House, and add special products as needs arise.
