Westerly Rotary CAN do!!!
In a continuing effort to do what we can for our community during these trying times, we will be collecting canned goods and dry goods.  The Jonnycake Center of Westerly, RI Assisting Those in Need (RICAN) and Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center are now accepting canned and dry goods.  They have given out thousands of pounds of food during the pandemic and can always use more.  The Board discussed this need at the last Board meeting and felt that once a month we would ask our members to bring some canned goods to our meeting.  To keep things easy, collection will happen at the last meeting of each month.  Leave the goods in your vehicle and they will be collected after the meeting by those who will be delivering the items.  Eventually, we hope to expand this project to a community-wide collection event.  So, our first Westerly Rotary CAN do will be Monday, August 31st..  We had a pretty good start.  Next collection date is November 30 bring canned goods to Avie's Ski/Sport.
Rona said that the delivery project is still continuing - five deliveries were made last week.  Thank you for all who are helping with this project.
