ROTARY CLUB OF THE VILLAGES EVENING BELIEVES
BY BUILDING COLLABORATIONS WE CAN DO MORE....
VILLAGE CAR WASH
Debra Cullen (R) and son, Dillon(L) had the help of sister, Elizabeth to fulfill the wishes of 7 children on the Rotary Angel Tree list.
HUNGRY HOWIES PIZZA - Lady Lake
When co-owner, Debra Cullen, was approached about helping with our School Supply Drive...Yes we can give you a coupon for donors AND we will donate some funds too! After the check presentation owners, Debra Cullen and Pat Casalaspro said enthusiastically "We're ready to help you again. Just ask." .... so we are working together on the Rotary Angel Tree this holiday season. Thank you!
DID THEY STOP THERE?
NO! They have helped every food drive this year with promotion and a coupon for donors of the food drive. Hungry Howies also sponsored a baby play pen to collect baby essentials for four agencies that help new moms and babies. Then they also helped us thank a generous neighborhood by delivering specially priced pizzas. A true partner with Rotary Club of The Villages Evening!!
Business partnerships are important to what Rotarian Service Above Self. A good partnership OPENS OPPORTUNITY to serve in a more impactful way. Talk to us. Get to know us.
BELLA'S HAIR STUDIO
A short visit with owner, Norma Carlini, uncovered common philanthropic interests. The Salon has been focused on helping H.O.M.E. - Hands of Mercy Everywhere, providing a very special home for young women, pregnant women and young mothers. Norma and Melissa Fulwider, Salon Manager, are organizing a drop box in the salon to collect feminine hygiene products as part of the Rotary Food Drive Jan 9. Thank You!
And in April 2021 They sponsored a baby playpen during April and for the Rotary Baby Shower 4/26 and collected baby essentials for H.O.M.E. THANK YOU!!
The SEWING STUDIO
Catherine Conti operates the Sewing Studio in Lady Lake. She had not partnered for a cause before however the Rotary Baby Shower sounded like a good fit for her and her customers. The Sewing Studio, along with three of our other business collaborators, sponsored a baby playpen. It was displayed at the store for the month of April Then April 26 our club held a drive through Rotary Baby Shower and area residents filled the baby play pens with baby essentials. Thank you Sewing Studio for taking a chance on this project...we collected over 40 handmade baby blankets and 4 organizations have supplies for helping new moms and babies.
