November 23rd Thanksgiving Basket Project with Mitchell Field
On the Saturday before Thanksgiving, club members gather in the morning to assemble the boxes, each of which contains the right amount of ingredients for the size of the family to which it will be delivered. Rotary Amigos and Mitchell Field Rotarians, with the welcome help of family members and other volunteers, then fan out across our community to deliver these boxes to the intended destinations. The smiles and expressions of thanks that club members receive from the appreciative families are ample reward for the months of logistical planning, fund raising, and labor required to pull it off each year.
Service Above Self
The project began small at first, but it has grown substantially over the past years as the club has increased its ability to identify needy families, to raise funds to purchase food, and to muster the volunteer workforce necessary to carry out a project of this magnitude. In 2011, the club delivered 100 complete Thanksgiving Dinner Baskets to less fortunate fellow citizens in the Milwaukee. The Thanksgiving Baskets Project just illustrates one of the ways that our club is living up to the Rotary International Motto of “Service Above Self”.
Date: Saturday November 23rd
Location: Clarion Hotel at the airport. 5311 S. Howell Ave
