President Lynn Oullette of the The Rotary Club of Augusta welcomes three new members
at the March 31st club meeting: Joel Lyle, Julie Barter Lucas, and Chuck Dutton
Rotary’s motto, Service Above Self, exemplifies the humanitarian spirit of the organization’s more than 1.2 million members.
We are very excited about the Augusta Rotary Club's collaboration with the Augusta Food Bank's newly created Kids Weekend Program. They have partnered with the Augusta Schools and identified youth in need of supplemental food for the weekends. Currently they are providing 60 “packs” of food each week to the area schools to distribute to needy students.
Interested in helping? Collect the following food items: mac & cheese, cans of fruit, juice boxes, soup, spaghetti sauce, rice/rice mixes, canned veggies, cereal – hot or cold, crackers, granola bars, fruit snacks, pasta, canned tuna or chicken, peanut butter, raisins, and milk (shelf stable). Also you can help with donating your companies' reusable bags, as roughly 75 are needed each week. This is a new program and only has funding for this year so If you are interested in learning more about assisting with the future needs of children in our community or want to help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank You!
