Area One - Operation Warm
Over Three Thousand Winter Coats
Interacters, Rotacters and Rotarians quickly sorted the coats for the children in Detroit, Harper Woods and Grosse Pointe!
They've arrived — 3,396 coats for 1,734 boys and 1,662 girls in Detroit, Grosse Pointe and Harper Woods. Two semi-trailers, one 53' and one 40' delivered the 566 boxes of coats to the Stroh River Place, which generously donated warehouse space for receiving and shipping. It took the volunteers 5 1/2 hours to unload the two trucks on Wednesday, but with almost 50 volunteers on Saturday it took only an hour to sort the coats for shipment to, or pick up, by the partner agencies/schools. A collection of photos from both days, taken by John Minnis, can be found here:

The Leamington Rotary Club has been selling Christmas trees since 1991 to raise money for rotary projects. Tree sales originally started at Bennie Lumber then Zellers, and currently at Canadian Tire. The trees come fresh cut from Sloan's Tree Farm in Bothwell, Ontario. Featured sales personnel in this photo are Rotarian Jim Samson of Leamington's Club and Assistant District Governor, Julie Ricci.
Shelter Box Ambassador
Didn't do my research before leaving. Turns out the national sport in the Philippines is basketball. Didn't stop these children from a village on Bantayan Island from enjoying kicking the soccer ball around though. Thanks to DGN Liz Smith Yeats for supplying me with these to take to disaster victims around the world. The children thank you too!
