The Wilmington Central Rotary will be collecting food donations for Nourish NC and will be packing food at Nourish NC during December.
Miracles of Rotary
This year on December 18 we will be collecting for 3 charities:
Big Dreams, an organization that donates beds to children who don’t have them. We plan to purchase 100 air mattresses as they are easy to store and portable in case a child needs to move quickly. Additionally we will provide the children a set of twin sheets, a pillowcase, pillow and a heavy winter blanket.
Graclyn McCallum is a 3 year old diagnosed with leukemia. Graclyn is about to enter the last phase of intense chemotherapy which will go until the end of January. Her biggest challenge is muscle loss and she will be starting physical therapy after Thanksgiving. The Wilmington Central Rotary is planning to purchase an indoor gym, iPad and gas cards for travel to Chapel Hill.
Autism. The Wilmington Central Rotary plans to purchase items to help children with Autism. The Lifelong Interventions Program works on creating a therapeutic space that will foster meaningful, robust opportunities for naturalistic social learning, which is important for children with autism. The Wilmington Central Rotary will help purchase: tables, chairs, play mats, area rugs and room dividers, sensory and play equipment, exercise equipment iPads/tables, and protective cases.
