Thank you to those of you who have contributed to the food drive or made a monetary donation to the Cougars Care, Coronado High School Thanksgiving Project.  I just received an update from the sponsor teacher, Brent Urban, who shared that volunteers were not needed for this past Saturday.  Cougars Care has delivered gift cards and food to 75% of the families on their list and they will continue to connect with families and make deliveries as time permits, but outside volunteers to make deliveries is not needed. 
I dropped off the donated food I have received to the Coronado High School office last Friday.  If you have any additional food donations you would like to include please contact me at (719) 291-7747 or samanthac@sentinelsoffreedom.org to coordinate a pick-up. 
The Service Fund has approved $1,500  to assist in off-setting the cost of the Cougars Care program, which will cost about $8,000 to support 200 families this year.  If you feel so inclined, you are welcome to make a monetary donation to the service fund which will also be donated to Cougars Care.  https://checkout.square.site/buy/FGFECGG3INMJ5SIV5C4GKUDN
Thank you for your continued support in making these families holiday a little more special this year.

One Nation Walking Together helps seven Native American reservations with food, clothing, and necessities. Right now the COVID virus is raging out of control in these areas and they need additional food an non-perishables at this time. They are also unfortunate that right now up to 66% of homes do not have running water and 33% do not have het or electricity so your donations are needed now more than ever.
Please help us gather cans of food, rice, beans, soup, pasta, gloves, masks, diapers, formula, and personal hygiene products. You may call or email Cass Daley atcassdaleydesigns@usa.net or (719) 332-0005 to coordinate a pick-up at your home or a drop-off to hers.

Your words of inspiration were, well, inspirational.  We do live in a wonderful community and building ladders is a great symbol for what each of us is capable of doing.

November is Rotary Foundation month and our District Chair, Lloyd Nordhausen, announced the kick-off of this annual effort. 
This campaign is part of our Every Rotarian Every Year (EREY) fund drive and critical to the service we provide in our communities and around the world!  The District has set a goal to raise $300,000 in contributions so that 36 months from now, our District will have $150,000 to fund District & Global grants to our clubs!  There is no way to express how important our contributions are to our District's ability to provide funds to service projects at our club level!
He is asking each member of our District to contribute something.  No amount is too small that helps our efforts to fund global and district grants.  Remember, half of every dollar we contribute comes back the district to fund our district & global grants. We are recognized and rewarded if we can get Every Rotarian (Every Year) to contribute SOMETHING! 
No matter what you contribute it HELPS and WE THANK YOU!
