Christmas Food Baskets

For the third year in a row, the Rotary Club of Springdale distributed groceries to families of students at Lee and Jones Elementary Schools in Springdale to help combat food insecurity over the Christmas holiday school break.  The Club orders the groceries weeks in advance, selecting items to be both nutritious and kid-friendly. Members meet the week before school dismisses for the holidays to sort and sack groceries and deliver them to the elementary schools. School counselors then distribute the bags to students' families. Since beginning in December 2018, this project has doubled each year, and in 2020, we were proud to be able to deliver 800 bags of groceries to Springdale students.
