The Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley collected more than 500 pounds of thin-film plastic as part of the NexTrex recycling program. By you donating plastic film to NexTrex®, not only did the club help to keep thousands of pounds of waste out of landfills, it also helped Trex® to continue to make eco-friendly outdoor products. Through its donation, the club qualified for a Trex bench to be donated to the local community. Many thanks to the Bolton Bean, 626 Main Street in Bolton, MA, which served as a collection point. The club is hopeful that other community organizations will take on this challenge. For more information about the program and what plastic is acceptable, visit https://recycle.trex.com.
 
The Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley is collecting donations for Esperanza - Hope for the Children, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that services impoverished communities in Honduras. The following items are of particular need:

The Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley participated in the Bolton Pride Parade and Rally on June 5.

In partnership with Clinton Savings Bank and the Guidance Office, the Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley sponsored our annual financial Reality Fair at Nashoba Regional High School on the morning of Friday, April 8. More than 200 10th graders pre-selected a career and starting salary. On the day of the fair, they received a monthly paycheck (with deductions!) to purchase life's necessities, such as housing, transportation, insurance, clothing, and food. They were also tempted with nice-to-have purchases such as concert tickets, vacations, and pets! Students also had to spin the wheel of fortune to reflect unplanned income or expenses that happen as a part of life. Many thanks to the 43 volunteers who made this event a meaningful life lesson.

To learn more about what the students could purchase, you can find the 2022 volunteer handbook on nashobarotary.com in the Download section. 

 

On April 9, more than 70 people from the Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley, the Humanitarian Club of Littleton High School, the Nashoba Regional High School Interact club, several Rotary clubs across central Massachusetts, and the local community came together to package 20,000 meals to address hunger. 
 
The Rotary clubs funded the cost of the meals, and Rise Against Hunger New England provided the ingredients for packaging. Every dehydrated rice/soy meal is fortified with 20 essential vitamins and nutrients. The meals are then shipped to areas around the world where the need is greatest, including within the United States. Requesting organizations must meet certain requirements to receive a shipment of meals or donated aid, including accountability, importation (the ability to cover shipping costs), storage, and distribution.
 
Rise Against Hunger provides food and life-saving aid to the world's most vulnerable people and works to end global hunger in our lifetime. Established in 1998, the organization has provided more than 225 million meals in 74 countries. Charity Navigator gave Rise Against Hunger 4 stars, its highest rating.
