COAT AND BLANKET PROJECT

Hi to all my Rotarian friends and those who support Rotary. I have chose as my community giveback a coat and blanket drive. As it gets colder we have adults and children that don’t have coats or blankets to keep warm with. I’m asking you all to look thru your closets and get rid of those coats you haven’t worn in awhile. Blankets can be any size. Drop off locations are at Nevada Realty Roy Mankins or at the Nye County Assessors office. We will collect items until November 11th. Thank you in advance for all your help! Sheree

After college Guy entered the business world of finance and insurance. Jan became an elementary and middle school teacher.

Guy and Jan travel primarily in the western US and leading trips to visit overseas GHNI projects and spread the mission of GHNI. It was very interesting all the work that these dedicated Pahrump Rotarians do worldwide and how easy it is for Rotary to join in.GHNI is helping villages worldwide come out of poverty and become self sustaining. They are also fighting human trafficking and slavery. Besides Rotary they are interested in partnering with individuals, businesses, and churches.
