Celebrating the Holiday Season !

Chelsea Rotarians shopped and delivered new clothes and toys for over twenty local children as part of the Salvation Army Angel Tree Program.  We also volunteered as bell ringers for the Salvation Army's Holiday Red Kettle Donation Drive at Market Basket on December 19th. Twelve Rotarians covered the doors from 9:00A.M. to 3:00P.M. greeting store customers and enthusiastically ringing the bell to encourage donations.The bell ringing season starts each November and runs through Christmas Eve, when the red kettles are packed away for the season. Volunteers are the difference between an empty kettle and one that raises about $30 per hour, enough to provide a family with two bags of groceries, or shelter for an individual for a night.
2018 was full of service projects, fellowship and fun for the Chelsea Rotary Club, looking forward to more in 2019!
