On May 20 the Rotary Club of Concord will conduct a one-day donation drive of personal care items not covered by food stamps for Open Table food pantry in Maynard. The following items are requested: Diaper Sizes: 3, 4, 5, 6, Baby Wipes, Laundry Detergent, Dish Soap, Toothpaste and Shampoo. These are the same items we collected earlier this year, but this will be a ONE Day event as part of the Rotary Day of Service.
Items can be brought to two locations from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.: A New Leaf parking lot, 74 Commonwealth Ave., West Concord as part of Spring into West Concord Junction Day and at Crosby’s Marketplace on Sudbury Road in Concord. Concord Rotarians will be collecting personal care items at these two locations.
More than 500 Rotary clubs spanning five states and three countries will join forces on Saturday, May 20 to tackle wide-ranging projects.Throughout the day, Rotarians will undertake dozens of projects including planting vegetable, flower, and pollinator gardens, clearing walking and hiking trails, collecting food and other essentials, and preparing and serving meals to those experiencing homelessness. This international initiative includes projects in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Bermuda, and Brazil. The Day of Service is a coordinated network of Rotary Clubs and their members dedicated to improving the communities they serve. Literally every community from each of the eight Rotary Districts involved will be impacted by what happens on May 20.
