Rotary clubs in need of empty boxes for service projects such as food or clothing drives have access to hundreds of Rotary-branded boxes gifted to the district from a Rotarian in Iowa.
The district has approximately a dozen bundles of Rotary-branded cardboard boxes. Each bundle contains approximately 100 unfolded boxes (see photos).
The boxes were donated to the district from Teresa Schmidt, a Rotarian living in Iowa. Her daughter, Gina Schmidt is a former member of the Rotary Club of Glendale West (now Valley of the Sun Passport Club), and a volunteer with Peoria North Rotary Club's Prom Closet.
The boxes are available at no charge to any club on a first-come, first-served basis.
The boxes are stored at Family Promise of Greater Phoenix, 7447 E. Earll Drive, Scottsdale, 85251.
Contact Ted Taylor, executive director, to arrange for pickup. Call 480-659-5227.
