At Thanksgiving we are thankful for all the blessings we have received.  Yet there are also those who do not have a square meal.  Our Club joined in with our sister Club - the Rotary Club of Yonkers-East Yonkers to bring a little Thanksgiving joy to some families.
For the last few years, the Yonkers East Yonkers Club has been giving turkeys to the families of children at the Hostos Micro-Society School in Yonkers.  This year they were providing 13 turkeys.  One of our club members provided a donation to add five more turkeys to the gift of joy.  These turkeys will provide the recipient families with a Thanksgiving meal and perhaps a few more leftover meals too.  On behalf of the Club, Adviser Bina Ahmad handed over the turkeys to Rotarian Barbara Hanna of the Yonkers-East Yonkers Club on Wednesday,  25 November for delivery to the School.
The Hostos Micro-Society School administration held a raffle among the families of the children who would benefit most from this gift.  Our Club firmly believes in participating in projects which will benefit our local community as well as communities across the world.  In the true spirit of Rotary every little bit helps.  As volunteers, individually we can only do so much.  But together as Rotarians, we can change our world.
