July Project – Purses for the Homeless

Fill a purse with snacks, warm gloves, sanitary & hygiene products, and Wilmington Central Rotary will give them to homeless women in need.

Purses will be collected from July 1st to July 31st.

Drop off location is at Strickland’s, 5422 Oleander Drive, Wilmington.



Eight teams of two Rotarians each purchase mustard, ketchup, an onion, a tomato, cheese, corn on the cob, potato chips, coca cola, apple pie, hot dogs & rolls, hamburgers & rolls, and an American Flag. Food was given out this morning to families that the Harrelson Center helped to secure (special thanks to Lindsey and Meade). Thanks to Rotarians Louise & Shameena for delivering this morning.

Donations to the food bank

Chantay and Sarah from the Wilmington Central Rotary purchased and delivered our donation of food to the Food Bank. What a great job!

Thanks so much for making Wilmington Central Rotary so proud.

“We managed to get all the shopping, loading, and unloading done while the weather was nice and sunny. As soon as the Food Bank team helped us unload all the food, it started pouring and raining again! What a success”!
