Hello Rotaracts!

Our last meeting will be a service opportunity for you to do on your own instead of in-person due to Covid precautions!

Here's how:

Pick up a service packet in Student Development at the front desk starting RIGHT NOW! This envelope contains all the materials you need to make some fun holiday ornaments. We have a limited number of packets, so be sure to grab yours soon! Student Development is open M-F 8:30-4:30.

Send a picture of you working on the ornaments to us on Facebook to be featured on our page!

Return completed ornaments to Student Development by this FRIDAY, November 20 at 4:30pm where they will be donated to decorate a senior center here in Indianola.

A great opportunity to volunteer and give items you don’t use!

Do you ever bring home hotel size toiletries from a trip, only to have them get thrown in a drawer and never used again? Did you know the Helping Hand distributes these toiletries to our homeless clients? They are always put to good use, so if you have any you haven’t used, and would like to donate them, we will make sure to bless someone! Thank you!
