News about Glenwood Rotary:
January 14th we heard from Anna Killpack - the Executive Director of The National Alliance on Mental Illness - Southwest Iowa.
 
The infographic above shows some of the mental health stats for Iowa.  Keep in mind these stats are from pre-COVID.  The numbers today are likely to be much higher.
If you aren't feeling okay lately, know that that's okay.  Here are a few tips we discussed to get you feeling a little bit better:
- Attend a support group - NAMI Offers a variety of support groups weekly;
- Journal - Identify your feelings and what is making you feel that way;
- Develop a self-care ritual - Whether that means 20 minutes of silence with your coffee in the morning, or creating a to-do list for the following day before bed;
- Find something that makes you feel better, and do it daily;
- Use your people - It's okay to rely on others when you aren't feeling okay; and
- Take a break - and don't feel guilty about it. Give yourself some grace.

Lillian, Kendall, Joselyn and Delaney received their $1,000 scholarships from the Glenwood Rotary Club January 7th!  These ladies were selected for their commitment to their communities and for demonstrating a "Service Above Self" attitude during their time at Glenwood High School.  Each recipient has successfully completed their first semester at their respective universities.  Congrats, and best of luck in this coming semester!  #ServiceAboveSelf #Rotary
As we are all aware, food insecurity in our communities is at an all-time high. Even though the holiday giving season has passed, the need for food is still at a crisis level.
As a joint effort we are asking our Rotarian family and friends across Districts 5630 and 5650 to raise funds to help those in critical need of food.
In 2019 The Food Bank of the Heartland, in conjunction with the Lincoln Food Bank, distributed 22.7 million meals across 93 counties in Western Iowa and Nebraska. Beyond the more than 600 food pantries, schools, emergency shelters and other nonprofit partners directly supported, the Food Bank for the Heartland also coordinates other programs including SNAP (formerly the food stamp program), Mobile Pantry, and the Backpack Program.
The food drive will end on January 31st.  If you'd like donate, please visit:  https://support.foodbankheartland.org/.../Rotary-Open...
