Lori Macala, Chair of the Starfish BackPack Program - Rotary Club of Williams Lake Daybreak, (the lady with the mask) presented Williams Lake Royal Purple members Doris Neuert, Doreen Zimmerman, and Darlene Doucette with a certificate of appreciation for their donation of $1575 made at the beginning of this school year.
Lori tells us that the Starfish Pack Program has been running in Williams Lake for five years. Kids will get fed breakfast and lunch at school, but often wouldn’t eat all weekend. Starfish was started to help. Kids do better in school when they’re not hungry - they pay attention, work harder, and are happier.
They deliver backpacks to 30 kids in three inner-city schools in Williams Lake almost every Friday during the school year. Each backpack provides 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, and 2 snacks and will often feed the whole family. 100% of donations goes to purchase food. Daybreak Rotarians and friends - all volunteers - pick up, pack, and deliver the backpacks.
Donation of 72 Handbags to LSCSS from Keremeos Royal Purple
A big shout out to all the Ladies from the Similkameen Valley for their generous donations of purses and toiletries. Thanks to the Community we managed a new high of 72 purses, 21 more than last year. I would like to thank Aamir and Nikki at Keremeos Pharmasave for once again being a major sponsor for this program. This year, as well as toiletries, they gave us supplies to help keep the ladies safe from Covid-19. I would also like to thank Buy Low for supplying a buggy to put the donations in, Valley First Credit Union and the Keremeos Info Centre for allowing us to use their bussinesses as a drop off location.
The Lower Similkameen Community Services Society will be handling the distribution of the purses for Women in Need. Contact: Gizella Samu 250-499-2352 Local 108
