The Akron Rotary club filled 30 shoeboxes that will be shipped to the children of the dump in Nicaragua, in time for Christmas.  Our boxes will be combined with boxes from other clubs in our District.  For the past several years the district has spearheaded this effort to relieve the day-to-day struggle that leaves the children reduced to fighting cows and dogs for food they can scavenge from the local garbage dump.

We are grateful to all the members who made donations to make this project a success.  Ben Heckerman &  Emily Patterson played an integral role with the organization of shopping and packing.  We also had some members of the North High Interact Club attend as well;  thanks to Tam Chau, SaHa Da Be, Nitash Dahal, & Prabin Magar.  They were excellent additions to our team.
