Sailors on the USS Nimitz show off a few of the 100 boxes of toiletries and snacks that were packed in December by volunteers from the  Rotary Club of Hillsborough, Operation Shoebox and the Hillsborough community.   The Club hosted its annual Operation Shoebox packing event at the Hillsborough YMCA, which brought together over 100 volunteers.  Jared Burchette, pictured in the center of the back row against the stars of the flag, is a Hillsborough native who used to volunteer at the annual packing event throughout his childhood along side his father, Greg Burchette, a former member of the Club.  Jared is now an Air Traffic Controller on the USS Nimitz.

Rotary Club of Hillsborough and Operation Shoebox Host Annual Holiday Packing Event
The Rotary Club of Hillsborough, Operation Shoebox and the Hillsborough YMCA once again teamed up with community volunteers on Saturday, December 10, to host their tenth annual holiday packing event to assemble boxes of donated goods and holiday messages for military serving abroad. 
Joining in the event this year as a major sponsor, was Magnate Worldwide, a diversified supply chain management company that provided both logistical and monetary support to Operation Shoebox.
“It must be particularly difficult for our troops to be away from family and friends during the holidays,” commented Ashley Rose, President of the Rotary Club of Hillsborough.  “These snacks and toiletries are a welcomed touch of home. And, along with cards and letters from local community groups, including Girl and Boy Scouts, they remind our troops that we are thinking of them and appreciate their service.”
With the help of approximately one hundred community volunteers, five hundred boxes were assembled in two hours at the Hillsborough YMCA, and will be shipped abroad in time for the holiday season.

The children were asked to look up the word, “charitable,” to help them understand the mission behind Rotary’s community service.  Most students only knew the Rotary Club of Hillsborough from the annual Rotary Fair. All third graders in Hillsborough and Manville will receive thesauruses, which include a QR Code link to a video about Rotary.
