    VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY WITH BSH AND RED CEDAR SCHOOL
     
    We have been presented with an interesting volunteer opportunity project from Bluffton Self Help!
     
    Red Cedar Elementary School is attempting to break a domino's game record using 4,000 boxes of cereal!  Once they complete the game they will be donating the 4,000 boxes of cereal to Bluffton Self Help.  This is where we come in to play...here's what BSH needs from us:
     
    • We need 4-5 folks with pick-up trucks.  Cars or SUV's won't work as the cereal boxes will be boxed into tall boxes that won't fit into Cars for SUV's.
    • A few extra folks to help move boxes to trucks and then to BSH.
    • When - Friday, April 9th from 12:30 - 2:30ish.
    • Where - meet at Red Cedar Elementary School

    RECAP: HAPPY FEET WAS A SMOOTH SUCCESS
     
    HAPPY FEET WAS A SMOOTH SUCCESS AT MC RILEY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ON MARCH 27th.
    The Bluffton Rotary Club Service Projects Committee worked hard to bring a plan together and coordinated with area school counselors so that our club could safely host Happy Feet. It benefitted kids from MC Riley, Red Cedar and Bluffton Elementary Schools. The shoes were distributed via a car pool line so the families could stay in their cars. School volunteers acted as "runners" taking shoes from the display tables to the cars. 
     
    We are so grateful to Kohls of Savannah for providing all the shoes. And we are especially thankful for all the hard work by Kohls Assistant Manager, Tracey Meredith, who went out of her way to give us shoes that matched the colors requested by the kids. Kohls also donated socks, hand sanitzer AND books some of which we gave away to local children and some we will use for the Rotary Club's Little Libraries. 
    We also want to send a warm thank you to Laura Van Houten a social worker with MC Riley Elementary School, Renee Lukasavage a social worker with Red Cedar Elementary School, Annie Burkhart administrator at MC Riley Elementary and Adrian Sutton the principal at MC Riley Elementary. And finally, we had two wonderful volunteers who acted as the runners between cars and the display tables--Olivia Boshaw and Makenzie Marlow both students at Bluffton High School. 

     
    BOOK DONATIONS NEEDED FOR FREE LITTLE LIBRARIES
     
    We still need book donations for the two Little Free Libraries our club maintains. 
    Please consider donating any children's or adult books so we can keep both little libraries fully stocked.
