  United Airlines has donated thousands of new comforters and first/business class amenity kits to our club for distribution to various needy organizations.  We have donated to 125 various agencies in the Chicagoland area.
Comforters donated - 23,000
Amenity Kits Donated - 26,500

Periodically. Rotary members, family members and friends meet at O'Hare Airport to do a sorting of products from amenity kits left onboard the plane.  Contents of these kits are distributed to agencies in need of these products.

This is an ongoing project of our club and the co-chairs are Pat Ranttila and Barb LaSpesa.
