Orange Sunrise Rotary kicked off its 2012-2013 signature project with a packing party on December 12, 2012, filling 50 “Blessing Bags” for distribution to the homeless in our area. One-gallon zip-lock bags are filled with bottled water, snacks, hygiene supplies and other items to make life a little easier, if for only one day.
OSR will provide 365 Blessing Bags to the community and finished packing the remaining 315 at a club meeting on March 13, 2013. Members each keep several bags in their own cars, handing out the items to people they see while running errands or traveling.
Prospective members, neighbors, and family (even children!) participated in the project, which was brought to the club by President Tracey Curtis.
