In a huge community effort, Silverdale Rotary purchased a truckload of food which was  loaded and unloaded, transported, and staged for Rotary and community volunteers and their families to prepare 300 bags of food for those in need during the holidays.  Thanks to Rotarian Christie Scheffer who masterminded and coordinated the cadre of businesses and organizations for this effort. 
Silverdale Rotary: People of Action!
