Rotarians and Countryside Interact Club members bought and wrapped presents for fifteen IMG_4870underprivileged kids this Christmas.

Rotary provides Interacters with $100 per child and they shop for gifts which are then wrapped by both clubs at the Mattie Williams Neighborhood Family Center.

This fun event is another way Rotary serves the community.
