The Rotary Club will take care of the delivery to the drop off point in Appomattox so the donated stuffed animals arrive in time for Christmas. Please leave them at the church or at the other mentioned locations by November 21.  A $1.00 donation per animal will help defray the costs of shipping the animals overseas, so if you would like to make a financial donation you can leave it at the church or with any Rotarian and the Rotary will also take that with them upon delivery of the stuffed animals. Your support will help a child in another country have a holiday that offers him the gift of a stuffed animal as well as the gift of the spiritual meaning of Christmas through the teachings of Gleaning for the World.  Be a part of that gift giving process this year. Gleaning for the World-“taking America’s surplus and using it to share the love of Christ around the world” and is also bringing together a community of various businesses and organizations in South Hill who wants to help others by contributing  in their own special way to this service  project.
