Greece Rotarians were on hand to help Kelly Jenkins, a senior Interact student at Greece Odyssey Academy, with her senior project – A food packing event for Rise Against Hunger. Kelly participated in Greece Rotary’s “Stop Hunger Now” event two years ago, helping to pack 60,000 meals. She was inspired to use her senior project to further the hunger relief cause. Kelly solely made all plans, recruited all volunteers and raised the funds needed to make the event a reality! In just a few hours 10,000 meals were packaged and packed, readied for transport and loaded on trucks to begin their journey to those in need. This was a huge undertaking, expertly planned and carried out by very talented Interact senior Kelly Jenkins.
