|The Rotary Clubs of Flagler Beach, Flagler County and Palm Coast along with the Interact Clubs of Matanzas and Flagler Palm Coast High Schools invites anyone interested in volunteering to package 10,000 meals with the Stop Hunger Now program to join us on Sunday, November 16 at the Flagler Beach United Methodist Church, 1520 Daytona Avenue in Flagler Beach. The event will be held from 1-4pm.|
Stop Hunger Now meals are highly nutritious, dehydrated meals comprised of rice, soy, vegetables, flavoring and 21 essential vitamins and minerals. Each package provides a reasonable serving for six and each serving costs approximately .29 cents to make. The Stop Hunger Now program partners with Rotarians all over the world to provide these nutritional meals where they are needed. “I love Stop Hunger Now rice a lot…I can’t have enough of this rice. When my parents send me to school without anything to eat, they don’t worry because they know I will eat at school. I pray every day for the people who send the rice,” said Jean Kendy, a 2nd grade student from Cite Soleil School in Haiti. The funding for this project will be from the Rotary Clubs, the Interact Clubs and donations from the community. For those that cannot attend the event, they can donate on line www.flaglerbeachrotary.org.
There will also be a food and frozen turkey drive. The Rotary Club of Flagler Beach through their service project, Project Share, will provide Thanksgiving meals to 75 families. Attendees are asked to bring a donation of non-perishable food and a frozen turkey for local families.
This is a Rotary Days event. Rotary International President Gary C.K. Huang launched Rotary Days to urge all Rotary members to ‘Light Up Rotary’ by organizing a Rotary Day in 2014-15. The concept is simple: hold a fun, informal event in the community to introduce the public to your club and Rotary. Children are invited to participate and videos will be shown so attendees can see what Rotary is doing around the world and in our local community. “You will be uplifted and touched when you experience how two hours and 10,000 meals can change lives,” said Rotary Club of Flagler Beach President Kim Carney.
The Rotary Club of Flagler Beach will, once again, be hosting the Holiday at the Beach Parade in Flagler Beach!
Please plan to attend on Saturday, December 6, 2013 at 1PM.
We are asking parade viewers to bring an unwrapped gift. Donations will be accepted during the parade and will assist our Project Share gift program.
