‘Clothes for Kids’ donation time growing short

Screen shot 2016-04-20 at 4.03.23 PM
A reminder: This Thursday is one of the last two days we’ll be accepting donations of new or like-new items in our “Clothes for Kids” drive.

If you haven’t been shopping yet, please bear in mind that what we’ve collected so far have mainly been items for toddlers and young children. We’re now mostly in need of items for middle- and high-school ages.

This is our project for this year’s “Rotary Day of Service” that has been given a poverty theme. We are working with the family assistance agency Circles of Mercy to distribute the clothes to needy families in our area. Our goal is to collect at minimum 400 pieces of clothing. That is less than 10 items per member.

Even if you are unable to stay for meetings this Thursday and/or next, you can always drop off your donations on those nights and be on your way. In a pinch, if I have to I’ll even drive to your home to pick up donations if that’s the only way we can get them. I have to deliver them to Circles the week of May 5.

Thanks to all.
