During this past year the members of the Rotary Club of Sturbridge have collected and donated over 500 copies of magazines to Harrington Hospital and the Worcester Veterans Shelter. Specific titles for distribution are carefully selected to meet the interest of the residents for each of these locations. The titles represent a very wide variety of articles to provide for the reading level and interest of the reader. The primary goal is to supply the facilities with the newest issues of the magazines. An inventory of the magazines is maintained to provide information of the titles and the number of copies distributed to each facility. Direct communication is made with each facility to gather information of their desired choice of selection of the magazines.
Magazines are also collected from family members and friends. This is a wonderful way to recycle material and provide magazines for others to read while waiting in the lounge or reading room.
