Athens Rotary Serving The Community

 
During the month of December, Athens Rotary Club filled bags for the Athens City School Full Tummy Project.  Rotary then distributed them to each city school each Friday in January (Athens Intermediate, Athens Elementary, Julian Newman, Cowart and Brookhill).
 
The second portion of the project was to distribute food items to the county schools for their weekend backpack food programs for elementary children at risk for hunger.  Packages were delivered to West Limestone, Blue Springs Elementary, Owens Elementary, Johnson Elementary, Tanner, Creekside, Cedar Hill and Piney Chapel.
 
All totaled Athens Rotary Club provided over 12,000 servings of food items such as granola bars, cheese crackers, peanut butter crackers, fruit cups, beef ravioli, juice boxes and pop tarts.
