Angel's Hand Project

Meeting: Monday, September 12th, 2011

Baljit Gill, WRC Community Service Chair and benefactor took the initiative to design Angel's Hand, a project that would become a tradition for the Back to School time of the year.

Baljit's passion for making a difference never ceases to amaze me. From providing education to less fortunate children in India to fighting to stop hunger in the community we live in, he is a true leader who continues to do wonderful things in the world.

Club members joined hands to make school kits (note books, folders, writing papers, pencils, glue, erasers etc.) for elementary students at Sanford Elementary School in Newport News.

Rotarians wrote special messages in the cards to these children. This will help the children of mostly active duty military men who are defending our country and we appreciate their sacrifices for the nation.

This fall, Baljit prepared two more projects to engage our fellow Rotarians and Interactors in the NN Fall Festival and a Bag Lunch project meant to diminish hunger in the community.

Parking Project – Newport News Fall Festival (October 02, 2011)

Rotarians will be working with Menchville High School Interact Club to assist in the parking at Newport News Park on this annual affair. Volunteers will be directing traffic for parking, collecting parking tickets and working with Newport News Park Services during the whole day. Club members will also serve as good role models for the young Interactors.

Bag Lunch Project with Newport News Social Services – October 03, 2011
This is one of our projects directed towards hunger issues in the community. Club Rotarians will lend their services to bag at least 600 food packets for the homeless and needy population of Newport News. Menchville High School Interact club members will join us on this day. Thanks to Doug Shires for his assistance in coordinating this event. We wish him God speed.

If you haven't got a chance to sign up to volunteer for these events, please contact Baljit in the next two weeks.

Message from Brad:
