Can Packing Team 
December 19, 2018
Vestal Rotary conducted its annual Can Packing "Party" the evening of December 19, 2018.  Seventeen club members,assisted by family and friends, as well as members of the Boy Scouts and High School Interact Club packed food boxes for 25 members of the community.  Food was collected by the club during the holiday season and included a wide variety of canned food products.  More than 6,000 food items were gathered.  Once the food was sorted it was packed into large boxes.  Food amounts varied based on family size but each family received enough food for several holiday meals.  Included in each box was a 5 lb ham and bag of potatoes.  Families also received gift cards to a local grocery store for perishable food items.  
Vestal Rotary wold like to thank our partners; the Town of Vestal, the Vestal Central School district and Diamon & Bacorn for helping to make this project possible.
