  • Rotarians raising awareness of the continuing fight against polio. After 25 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are on the brink of eradicating this tenacious disease, but a strong push is needed now to root it out once and for all. It is a window of opportunity of historic proportions.

Foundation Grant Project Highlight: Pack-a-Sack

Rotary Club of Seven Springs, with the help of a District 6950 District Grant, puts shelf stable, nutritious foods in sacks for local students.Many children who were receiving free breakfast and lunch at school did not have anything to eat for dinner or on the weekends. The school's Breakfast/Lunch programs were the children’s main source of food.

Last year the Club distributed approximately five hundred sacks of food to fifty of the neediest children who participate in the free school lunch program at Anclote Elementary.

These sacks contain foods such as fruit cups, oatmeal packets, rice dinners, peanut butter, cheese snacks, fruit juices, raisins, etc.

The club meets at the Refuge Church the first Monday of each month to pack food for a four week period. It is a very popular and appreciated program and helps prepare and make kids more alert for Monday morning learning.

This is part of an ongoing project to help feed food insecure children in our community.
