Tuesday, November 21 was a busy day for Rotary.  Sasha DiPietro organized Rotary's participation in Adopt-a-Family distribution day at the DPW garage.  Reading Rotary works with ReadingCares and the Town to coordinate the Adopt-a-Family program.  Donors are paired with families in need.  During the early morning drop off session, donors deliver fixings for Thanksgiving dinner for an anonymous family.  Along with Sasha, John, Lacy and Sean Douglass were representing Rotary during this shift.
During the later morning pick up shift, recipient families pick up the donations.  In addition to Sasha were Rotarians Peter Majane, Amy Walsh and Tim Kelley.
ReadingCares is an organization out of the Congregational Church.  Many volunteers from ReadingCares were on hand all morning as were Town of Reading volunteers.
Shout out to all the families and organizations who donated to this great community program.
If you could not help for Thanksgiving, please consider volunteering for the Christmas distribution day.  Sasha will be sending out a sign up for that one soon.
Special thanks to Sasha for heading up this project!
