Our club has decided to adopt the "Homeless Backpacks" organiation as our support to the local community.  Kelly Wilson from that organization visited our meeting this morning, and outlined some of the tasks we can volunteer for.  Of course, individuals can always donate money, as well, if they prefer.

A sign up sheet was distributed, and twenty of our members signed up to help out!  Good Job everyone!  I will be getting together with Kelly and we will schedule a work party very soon.

Kelly indicated she needs shoppers, packers to stuff sacks for lunches, maintenance and yard work for the house they use for storing and packing, and many more opportunities for club members, including delivering sacks to local middle schools and high schools.  Additionally, our Club will have a place on their Board of Directors. 

This is really an exciting time for our Club!  The Service Projects Committee will be brainstorming how we can raise funds for Homeless Backpacks - stay tuned!
