Next Thursday (December 14) is the only remaining dinner meeting at which you can drop off your donations at Quigley’s for our annual “Adopt-a-Family” drive to make the holidays bright for a very needy local family.
If you haven’t yet decided what you would like to contribute, simply check the “needs” and “wants” wish list for the eight children in the family shown below. Items marked in yellow already have been pledged.
You may even want to follow our frequent “kids helping kids” mantra and involve your own kids or grandkids in the shopping experience. We’d especially like to get our newer Rotarians involved in this annual event so you, too, can enjoy the glow that comes with helping the less fortunate.
Interestingly, although the parents of these children did not ask for anything for themselves, several of our SRC members have come up with pledges of gift baskets and shopping cards that will help make the adults’ Christmas a joyful one as well. So, you can always choose to donate something appropriate but not on the list, or even duplicate such things as clothes and toys already pledged.
Thank you for your generosity, and all you do for the community.
