ROBS MEMBERS CONTINUE TO HELP THE COMMUNITY
Just a reminder to our members to bring nonperishable food items to each general meeting that will be donated to Island Harvest. Many students from Northeast and Twin Pines receive food packets from Island Harvest.
Miriam Massucci will be collecting new books for Kindergarten and 1st grade level students which can also be brought to the meetings. These small books will be used to fill the baskets that these youngsters will receive during the Christmas holidays in December. This charity is sponsored by F.A.N. (Food and Nutrition), a program of Catholic Charities.
Peter Vercillo will also be collecting your contributions to ROBS Project Hope. With this money, ROBS adopts local families through Suburban Children Inc. during the holiday season. Food is provided for Thanksgiving and many gifts are bought, wrapped and presented at Christmas time. Later on we will be providing you with further details on this project, and how you can help.
Thank you all for your continued generosity.
