Helping Burgess Kids

Several Rotarians helped again this year with the distribution of food, turkey vouchers, toys and gift cards for which Rotary donated funds.  All of these items were added to other gifts donated by school families and community members.  Rotary worked with Lisa Meunier, school nurse at Burgess, who identified 40 Burgess families (impacting 150 individuals) going through difficult times this Christmas.  The St. John Paul II Food Pantry delivered the 40 boxes of food to Burgess and the rest of the items donated were added to the boxes.  Rotarians and Burgess staff members helped deliver the boxes to the cars of the recipients.  While we have given this donation previously, this was our second year with hands-on delivery of the food, cards and gifts.  Our efforts gave us a much closer look at the impact of our humanitarian work as Rotarians and it’s very rewarding.
