Future for Hati - The above picture was taken of a group of Hamilton Wenham Roatry club menmbers that volunteered to assist in packaging food for Haitian School Children. The program is organized and conducted thru the group Futute for Hati's event North Shore Packathon for Hati. This group organizes a food drive that packages sealed meals for school children to assure one well balanced meal per school day for a year. Due to covid 19 the packaging took place at the organizers home (outdoors) with social distancing and protective clothing. Work Stations were set up allowing for an assembly line consisting of placing various meal portions into plastic bags, weighing and adjusting to assure proportions ,sealing the bas and filling boxes with the finished sealed packages. The boxes were loaded into a shipping container.  All organized by Tom and Huntley Skinner of Future for Hati (North Shore Packathon for Hati).  

 

Senior Citizen Program to Combat Isolation – Hamilton – Wenham’s Rotary club distributed twenty ipads to senior citizens in an effort to alleviate isolation and loneliness due to the Covid 19 restrictions. These ipads will assist in allowing the recipients to communicate thru the tablets, download pictures of loved ones and play games from apps. This idea was developed during one of our clubs zoom meetings. A committee was set up and conducted zoom meeting to manage the process. The group was headed by Dr, George Beilin. The Council of Aging in Hamilton and Wenham assisted in the process by determining who would be best served by the ipads. In addition they arranged training from student  volunteers from the High School.
