Basic Needs Drive for Area Families

Can you help?  Sixty migrant families in hotels in Somerset and Swansea and 75+ other families in shelters and sites served by Catholic Social Services and SEMCOA need essential items.  Please consider donating item (s) and water from the list below and bring them to our November 9th and 16th Meetings.  
Important reminder:  To ensure equitable distribution of items, please DO NOT donate items directly to the hotels or other sites.  Items donated at our meetings will be delivered to the Family Resource Center by representatives from our Rotary Club, or you can drop off items on your own at the Family Resource Center, 45 Rock Street, Fall River.  Thank you for considering this important and timely request.
