As a member of Midland Noon Rotary, Taitia Shelow is passionate about Service Above Self, Rotary's motto. She used her personal experience as inspiration for the club's latest Focus on Youth project, Duffels of Love.
"When my boys came to live with us they basically had all their possessions, a few stuffed animals and some clothes that barely fit, in a garbage bag. Now I want to help other children in foster care by giving them some items to help them remember they are not alone. Even something like a deodorant can go a long way," said Shelow.
The Midland Noon Rotary Club, who along with the Midland County Department of Health & Human Services are looking to improve the lives of kids in Midland County.
To help our foster families and children, we are collecting items from October 1 thru December 1, 2016 that DHHS can have on hand whenever a child in our community is in need. Your assistance spreads hope and love while making it just a little bit easier for the challenges faced by our courageous foster kids.
Thank you for your kindness!
Our volunteers will stuff duffel bags with these basic-need collected items:
- Soap/Body Wash
- Gift Cards
