Here's What's Happening in Our Club
On Saturday, Oct. 3, we held a very successful food drive for St. Vincent de Paul at the Albertsons in Eagle.
 
For eight hours, 10 of our club members — plus one grandson, one son and one spouse — encouraged shoppers to donate groceries to St. Vincent de Paul. And shoppers helped out! We collected eight baskets of nonperishable food items that went to one of the five food pantries operated by the nonprofit. A huge shout-out to Albertsons for generously contributing a few cases of Ramen noodles — as were we! 
Doing yardwork at JEMfriendsLike many clubs across our district, Eagle/Garden City is struggling to find ways to serve others while remaining safe and connected to each other and the community. Being creative and flexible are key in these challenging times. Some of our projects require modifying or rescheduling; however, some just require us to roll up our sleeves, get outside and get dirty.
Many Rotarians in our district are asking, “What can I do to help in the fight against COVID-19?” A donation to The Rotary Foundation’s Disaster Response Fund is one way.  And District 5400 is committing $15,000 of its DDF (District Designated Funds) to match individual and club donations to this fund. This is a one-to-one match, and all Disaster Response Fund contributions back to July 1, 2019, are eligible.  
 
EGC members delivering art supplies to Pierce ParkAlways wanting to do more to enhance our community, the Rotary Club of Eagle/Garden City asked nearby Pierce Park Elementary how we could help. School counselor Sarah Dunn said that providing some art supplies would be great. Most teachers can’t afford them, and the Boise School District doesn’t provide supplemental funds for such supplies. 
 
Understanding the plight of Idaho teachers who, according to the Economic Policy Institute, spend on average more than $400 of their own money on supplies for their student, we committed to the project. Armed with a two-page Google list of all the things the Pierce Park teachers would love for art projects, four of our club members (led by Gene deLaveaga) headed to Quality Art Supply in Garden City.
