Two of our sponsored interact clubs (Warwick and Menchville High Schools) joined hands with club Rotarians (Jim Probsdorfer and Baljit Gill) to pack 6000 meals for the needy in Honduras. The event was held on 04/30/11 at Warwick High School Cafetaria. There were 17 interactors, 4 teachers (Interact club mentors) and 2 Warwick Rotary club members. Warwick High School interactors raised $1000 and Menchville High School interactors raised $500 to purchase the necessary food to pack. Each meal is to provide 250 calories. It had the necessary vitamins source, protein and carbohydrates to meet the daily food allowance for one person. Food material was purchased from mid west area of USA.
It was amazing to see the young Interact Club members at work in the service of others. They opted for this service rather than enjoy the beautiful spring day outside. We are pleased to see the spirit of Rotary in these youngsters. There was a talk of having a bigger event next year when we will have the opportunity to involve more club Rotarians, other families and students from respective High Schools.
It's a humble way to shape the world and foster world peace.
