Community Thanksgiving Food Program
Sponsored by local churches and Supported by the local community
 
FEED A FAMILY serves the less fortunate in Stevensville, Chester, Grasonville, Queenstown, and parts of Centreville. Anyone who needs food for Thanksgiving can call for help. This is a neighbor program, sharing God's blessings with others.
 
Their main focus is getting the Turkey Tags displayed, chosen, filled and delivered to their distribution center, and then delivered to families the Saturday before Thanksgiving.
 
They use food drive donations to supplement boxes made by folks filling the Turkey Tags, giving a little extra to large families. All extra food gets distributed to local food banks.
 
Donated grocery gift cards are distributed to church groups that have a Christmas Basket Food Program to allow them to serve more families.
 
FEED A FAMILY is totally independent: does not work with governmental agencies and receive no outside grants.
 
They encourage all the local churches to work together, under one database, to attempt to serve as many as need help.
 
FEED A FAMILY is eternally grateful to the community businesses and groups that support them with physical needs each year: the building, tables, boxes, freezer truck, local produce, fresh bread.
 
They offer a YOUTH NIGHT service opportunity; organizing and packing the Food Drive donations that go to local food banks.
 
Needs continue to grow: Would you participate this year?

What is it like taking a large team to Africa?  It has probably been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. In mid February, I began leading Rotary members from all over the East Coast of the United States through Ghana. I’ve tried to give the team a warm Ghanaian welcome like I’ve received on my earlier trips. A large trip is a real blessing because each person sees Ghana and our work in a different way.

For years, Angalia Bianca had slept in abandoned buildings throughout Chicago. She stole. She did drugs. She spent time in and out of jail for forgery, theft, trespassing, and possession of narcotics. But after she landed in prison for the seventh time, something changed -- Bianca knew she wanted a better life. She just didn’t know how to make it happen.

Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
