It's an annual tradition for the Huntingdon Valley - Churchville Rotary. Since our club doesn't meet for dinner right before Thanksgiving and Christmas, members donate the costs of their meals to a Holiday Fund. Pictured above (L-R) Rotarians Drew Slousky and Rich Hamilton brought the club's second seasonal delivery of 17 complete meals to the Southampton "Jesus Focus" Food Pantry. Executive Director Mary Dougherty represented the program for the area's needy.
While most of us live without want, there are still hard times for many in the area. The Huntingdon Valley- Churchville Rotary is partnering with the Cowhey Family Warminster ShopRite to help fund our club's charitable projects through the "Save- A- Tape" Program. Simply label your register tape with the club's name and drop it in the collection box in front of the store. A percentage of sales will be donated to the club. The Warminster ShopRite is located at 942 W. Street Road.
