$800 a month???Are you cleaning out old clothes for the first of the year?  If you donate them in the big blue box located on Quaker road at the Hewitts gardening center, the proceeds go to the Rotary Gift of Life. As the headline reads – the Rotary district makes around $800 a month through this program! This helps us bring children from other countries to Albany Medical Center for life saving heart surgeries.  We do this year round.   So look for the big blue box with the Rotary wheel and dump your old clothing, pillows, bedding, shoes, and blankets in it. 
See you Thursday,
“Be the Inspiration”
The end!
