Today, the RMHS Interact Club took time from their April Vacation to prepare and serve lunch at Rosie's Place in Boston's South End.  Rosie's Place is a women's shelter which provides a safe and nurturing environment to help poor and homeless women maintain their dignity, seek opportunity and find security.  Rosie's Place provides meals and shelter and helps 12,000 women a year with wide ranging support including housing, and education services.  Rosie's Place was founded in 1974 as the first women's shelter in the United States.
 
Rosie's Place has a volunteer program for community organization who donate the cost of the meal and also prepare, serve and clean up.  This also offers the opportunity for our members to interact with the clients of Rosie's.  This day they served 160 meals.  Reading Rotary sponsored Interact's trip today. 
 
Also, helping with the meal were chaperones, Superintendent John Doherty and recently appointed Assistant Superintendent Christine Kelley.
 
Thanks to all the Interact Club members for their service today!
