The Rotary Club of Wells has recently launched “Operation Warm” which is their newest service project to provide winter clothing for children in need within the Wells community. Earlier this year the club was awarded a $2,000 grant from Rotary District 7780. The grant along with the generous support of club donors will help to provide winter coats and snow pants to children in need. Community partners included in this service project include the York County Community Action Corp., Operation Warm which is a nationally known nonprofit that supplies children’s coats, and Reny’s of Wells.

To further impact their efforts, the Rotary Club of Wells will be holding a warm clothing drive on November 2nd with the collection site being at the Wells Junior High School Gymnasium located at 1470 Post Road, Wells, ME. The Club is asking the community to consider donating new socks, mittens and winter hats for children ages 3 months to 8 years of age when they come to vote. A table and collection box will be available from 9 am to 6pm at the Wells Polling site.

Residents who may not be able to make it to the voting site on November 2nd can also make an online donation toward the clothing initiative. A donation of $25 buys a child a warm winter coat, mittens, hats, and pair of socks. Or simply visit the Rotary website and click donate to make a donation.
