NORTH CHANNEL – Following their annual tradition, the members of the North Shore Rotary Club packed and distributed almost 300 food baskets to families for their holiday meal. The club took special care to include healthy foods, such as fruits and vegetables, according to club president Kim Gonzalez. The number of baskets increased from about 200 last year, to this year’s total of 300.
Club project chair John Parrott kept track of a distribution list, and all the club members loaded their cars and made the deliveries. The list of families was obtained from school counselors in the area.
