ImageRay Bostic and Diane Lease would like to invite you to participate in a service project to help the CARE food pantry in Vinton County on Saturday, October 13th.  Time for departure will be provided in the near future.

Ray met with the folks from CARE and they will be replacing their roof and working on some improvements to the building....If you've been there, you understand how important that is!  Ray also discussed how they are going to clean out the 2nd and 3rd floor of the building.  To help get the building ready, they need our help in preparing for the largest garage sale that Vinton County has seen and we need your help!

Vinton County has the second highest percent of people living at 200% or below the Federal Poverty Level within the State of Ohio at 49.1%. The only County that is worse off than Vinton County is Morgan County with 51.1% of the people living in Morgan County who are living at 200% or below the Federal Poverty Level. The only difference between Vinton County and Morgan County is that Morgan County has a Rotary Club to help support those organizations who feed hungry families.

To make things worse, they are having challenges in getting food.  Recently, they had only 400 canned food items to give 400 families.  Our Club continues to have the unique opportunity to make a huge impact on a community in need and just like in October, we are going to reach out to the other area Rotary Clubs as well as Cap Square and Dublin AM.

With Columbus Rotary, we can achieve anything!  I'll look forward to hearing from you!
