This year’s Interaction event at Aurora High School hosted approximately 300 students from more than 15 different Interact clubs. It was a huge success! For this year’s district project, students almost unanimously decided to support women’s shelters by donating needed items to help the shelters run as well as help women and children get back on their feet after a traumatizing experience. Our Interact clubs have already started collecting items to donate. All items will be brought together at the District Conference of Clubs on Saturday, April 25th, and Rotarians and Interact students will spend part of the afternoon that day organizing the donations to make them ready for delivery. Please consider helping the cause by donating items or making a monetary donation as an individual or a club! There are several items that are more valuable that we need the most help collecting, and we would love the help of every Rotary club in the district. We are working on an Amazon Wishlist to share with all Rotarians that will be available soon.
Higher value items are: Twin & Full Size Sheets, Twin & Full Size Comforters, New Bed Pillows, Coffee Makers, Toasters, Pots & Pans, Baking Dishes, and Tall Kitchen Trash Cans.
Additional items: Trash Bags (13 gallon and 30 gallon), Paper Towels, General Cleaning Products, Kleenex, Hand Sanitizer, Disinfectant Wipes, Liquid Dish Soap, Ziploc Freezer and Storage Bags, Bleach, Laundry Detergent, Mop & Bucket, Sponges, Hair Brushes, Hair Ties, Size 5 & 6 Diapers, Baby Wipes, Bath Towels, Shower Curtain Liners and Rings, Winter clothing, Bathing suits, Flip flops, and Pajamas/leggings.
