North Coast Rotarians supplied Coffee, Creamer, Pancake Mix and Cinnamon Rolls to Community Resource Services (CRS) for their Easter Brunch Basket project. (Thanks to Apples Market who significantly discounted our purchases!) CRS was able to assemble Easter Brunch baskets for 75 families in need, combining these with donations of eggs, bacon, syrup, Easter egg decorating kits, fruit cocktail, candy and Easter baskets from other organizations including New Westsiders. Several Rotarians and New Westsiders assisted CRS staff in organizing the donations. Families began picking up their Baskets at the beginning of April. (North Coast Rotary has long supported CRS whose mission is to diminish the effects of poverty in Avon and Avon Lake: https://www.aalcrs.org)
We Make a Difference~
In September, we received a certificate of appreciation from CRS, Community Resource Services (serving Avon and Avon Lake) and “thanks” from the Brookside Schools for our boxes and boxes of school supply donations for students in need – this initiative was in collaboration with New WestSiders and Avon Lake Kiwanis.
We also received a Thank You letter from Blessing House (a children’s crisis care center) for our financial contributions to their capital campaign of $1000, when leveraged with matching donations.
