GIVING this Thanksgiving!

YOU can HELP families, women, and children at Christina's House and the Gray House

 
Any donation will help! A $50 donation for example, will help purchase a full Thanksgiving dinner for a family of 4 at Christina's House. You can make your donation online via PayPal OR bring a check to our next Rotary meeting. Our VP, Samalid Hogan, has volunteer to purchase Stop & Shop Grocery Gift cards and personally deliver them to Christina's House.
 
About Christina's House: Many women and their children in the Springfield area go without housing on a daily basis. They have no place to call home and no place to feel safe. The lives of these mothers and their little ones are forever changed by their circumstances; their nutrition suffers putting them at risk for health concerns and their psychological health is often damaged. The voices of these families called out to us for help.
 
We are also doing a FOOD DRIVE for the Gray House and collecting Thanksgiving food items such as: Frozen turkeys, Gravy, Cranberry sauce, Stuffing or rice, Pink, red, or black beans, Cake mix & frosting, Pie crust & pie filling, and Grocery gift cards. Our Rotary President, Maurice Powe, has volunteered to bring your donations to the Gray House after the Rotary meetings. 
 
*** BRING YOUR FOOD DONATIONS TO A ROTARY MEETING ***
 
About the Gray House: The Gray House helps its neighbors meet their immediate needs and addresses the root causes of poverty by operating a food assistance program, adult education programs and after school and summer youth programming. Over 7,000 unique individuals are helped by these programs each year.
