Meals of Hope Food Packing A Success!

Many Thanks to those who helped pack 6,480 meals in less than 2 hours at the Day of Service with District 7630 clubs. Saturday morning, at the VFW in North East, our club really rocked with Rotarians Paul Keely, Joyce Henderson, Marie Holliday, Robin Broomall, Nancy Chase, Anthony Santoro, Kelly Bachman with friends and family members, volunteers from UD Community Engagement Initiative, and local church and community members. Team Leader Joyce kept everyone moving to the beat of the music as we filled, weighed, sealed and packed bags with seasoning, dry chicken broth, dried corn and peas,  and rice. Our packed cases were then picked up by Jewish Family Services for their Afghan Refugee program, Delaware Dream Center, Friendship House, Sunday Breakfast Mission, and Garments from God/Word of Life Church.

Public Service Announcement:
Did you know a mandatory 10-digit dialing for Delaware phone numbers is effective on October 24, 2021?  Now you can begin updating all those phone numbers you have stored in your phone and they will go through with the 302 area code.. Starting Oct. 24, all Delaware phone numbers must include the 302 area code or they will not go through. Any land lines must dial 1-302-and the number. You can still dial 911 for emergency services without the 302 area code.

Our list of committed sponsors for Flags For Heroes is now at $10,500 with 160 flags! Let’s get to the next goal of $13,000.
One way to boost our Flags For Heroes income is to secure sponsors. Polly Sierer is looking for businesses or individuals who would like to support our activities and be Flags For Heroes Sponsors at the $10,000, $5,000, $2,500, $1,000, $500, and $250 levels. Each level will be acknowledged on our website and social media,  have logo on banner at flag time, receive medallions for flags, and higher levels will receive additional ad space in our Report. See Polly if you, your business, or an acquaintance is interested.
Public Service Announcement:
Did you know a mandatory 10-digit dialing for Delaware phone numbers is effective on October 24, 2021?  Now you can begin updating all those phone numbers you have stored in your phone and they will go through with the 302 area code.. Starting Oct. 24, all Delaware phone numbers must include the 302 area code or they will not go through. Any land lines must dial 1-302-and the number. You can still dial 911 for emergency services without the 302 area code.

Working at the Food Bank
A volunteer night at the Food Bank of Delaware will be Tuesday, Oct. 5 at 6 p.m. Typically we pack bags of food items for backpacks for children who have little access to nutritious meals on weekends. They receive free or reduced meals (breakfast and lunch) at school during the week then take backpacks home for the weekend. It’ s easy work for us but mighty important for the children who receive them. Go to fbd.org to log in and scroll down to find 6 p.m. on Oct. 5. You must register online in order to volunteer. If you need help, contact Jerry Holt.
Meal Packing Event
Put Saturday, Oct. 16 on your calendar to volunteer at the HUGE meal packing event. In support of our District Governor Hugh Dawkins’ Day of Service, hundreds of our fellow District 7630 Rotarians will work in 3 different locations to pack meals for those less fortunate. Unlike other meal packing events we have participated in where the meals are shipped to third-world countries, these meals will be distributed in our own region. We will work with Rotarians from our own area at the VFW Post 160 in North East, Md. Stay tuned for registration info.
