Rotarian, Barry Bell had a goal to build 20 Thanksgiving bags for families of Summit Middle School. Little did he know, but the Club would come through in a big way, providing a total of 27 bags.
Each bag contained a variety of grocery items that would be needed to make a traditional Thanksgiving meal. In addition, a $25.00 gift card to either Crest Foods or Walmart to purchase a turkey, ham, or any additional grocery items.
The Rotary Club of Edmond has been providing Thanksgiving bags to Summit for 4 years. Bell coordinated the effort with Summit pantry volunteer Tami Seknicka. She was appreciative of the Club’s efforts and commitment to the community. In her first year as Head Principal, Maryjel Cochrane also expressed her gratitude for the bags that would provide a great holiday for families needing a little help.
