Rise Against Hunger & Helping Hurricane Victims
I have attached the link to sign up for our next Rise Against Hunger event
 
 
October 24th 
9:00-1:00 Various shifts
Rise Against Hunger Warehouse
8901 Jameel Road, Suite 130
Houston, 77040
 
This is a joint event with the University Area Rotary Club.  
Due to the Virus, we have limited the total participants to 20 from each club for a two-hour shift.
 
I have signed Sonya Heath and myself up for the event, so there are 19 spots available from each club for a two-hour shift.  Sonya is the lead for University Area Rotary.  Thanks to the generosity of our members after Paul Ralph's passing we had a credit for our donations.  
 
We will be preparing 16,848 meals.  
 
My goal for our Rise Against Hunger event was to package 30,000 meals.  That would mean the Rotary Club of West U had been the lead club of packing 100,000 meals in our last three events along with this one.  COVID-19 put a stop to that goal.   Maybe we can have another meal-packing this Rotary Year or we will complete it next year.

About a year ago, I read an article on reducing junk mail.  Since finding The Story of Stuff Project, and going online to catalogchoice.org, I have significantly reduced my junk mail and some of my friends.  It's a free site to use (but consider donations) and it really works!  If you are an online shopper (outside of Amazon) you probably get a lot of catalogs you didn't know you signed up for.  (unfortunately, it doesn't work on political mail, but fortunately, that comes to an end for a while)
 
Join The Story of Stuff Project: Catalog Choice is a program of The Story of Stuff Project, a nonprofit dedicated to transforming the way we make, use, and throw away Stuff so that it’s more healthy, sustainable, and just. We make media that makes a difference while fighting to build a better world. Watch and share our videos, join our campaigns to end plastic pollution or unbottle water, or find your place in the movement by taking our Changemaker Personality Quiz
Baker Ripley creates opportunities for people to come together, for neighbors to connect, for individuals to make a difference—for everyone to work together to make an impact on our region. We are honored to be able to share opportunities for West U Rotarians to serve if you are able and choose to do so.
 
  • Food Fairs 
    • The COVID-19 crisis has dramatically increased food insecurity throughout our region. BakerRipley is committed to meeting the high demand.  We have partnered with the Houston Food Bank to expand our existing BakerRipley Community Food Fairs and are in need of volunteers to continue to serve our neighbors.  Safety precautions include: Check-in by a nurse, masks and gloves worn at all times, social distancing, and placing food directly in neighbors' trunks - no direct contact.
