The Rotary Club of New Orleans continued its annual Christmas Gift Project with a visit to the New Orleans Women and Children’s Shelter, and Hagar’s House. Each child provided a wish list for Santa, and Rotarians generously donated to this worthwhile cause. Volunteers purchased, wrapped and delivered 145 toys to 29 families in need within the New Orleans area. In addition, a $50 gift card was given to each parent.
(From L to R) Rotarians Karl Koppy, Penny Menge (Club President), Mary Bonfanti and Hank Wolf present a $5,000 grant along with presents to the Women and Children’s Shelter Administative Coordinator Sydney Coleman (center).
Ann Kiefer, Jay Aronson, Mary Bonafonti and Penny Menge wrapped over 100 presents.
