The five Rotary clubs of staten Island packed and delivered 1150 turkey dinners this weekend. Members from all five clubs pitched in and packed the dinners in less than two hours. Saturday moring all of the baskets were delivered to individual homes and distribution points on Staten Island. There were many other volunteers that lended a hand including a local Girl Scouts troop, Interact members, Roteract members and their families and friends.This great event is run by Mike D'Angelo and Paul Scamardella annually. At the end of the evening everyone we took a picture thanking the Rotary clubs of New Orleans for donating to Staten Island's Hurricane victims.
Many Rotarians look forward to gathering at this event and helping to serve the community. It has become a family event for most. Having so many young volunteers has been wonderful. Hopefully they will help carry on the Rotary tradition and get involved and eventually become future Rotarians.
