Rotary to send supplies to Uganda orphanage

The Ludlow Rotary Club is pleased to be helping an orphanage in Uganda. We have a local connection so it makes this project so much more fulfilling.  A community member will be visiting the Malayaka House with a group of Champlain College students in early May and they have graciously agreed to bring extra checked bags with some of the items on their wish list.

Some requests include: Toothbrushes and toothpaste, shoes for children ages 2-19, pants for children 2-19, and bathing suits for children 2-19, bed sheets, pillow cases, towels, deodorant, razors for shaving, coloring/activity books, children's books for all ages, toys, water bottles, thermometers (the ear ones are best) balls of any size to play with, laminated educational posters, school kits (pencil case, ruler, pencils, erasers), dish cloths, tablecloths, reusable grocery bags, padlocks with long hooks, sand paper for wood and metal.

Please bring any of the above items to a drop box located at Benson's Chevrolet, Peoples United Bank, Fletcher Memorial Library or Ludlow Insurance Agency before April 27.  We also will have a drop box at our annual Penny Sale on Saturday, April 28 for last minute donated items.
