Warm Hands from Kind Hearts

Moline, IL – Members of the Moline Rotary Club donated 370 mittens, scarves and hats to help keep children in the Moline School District warm during the coming winter months. These items will be donated to ten Moline Elementary Schools for use by students who do not have warm weather attire or forget theirs at home.
"Moline Rotarians continue to give back to the community through programs such as Warm Hands from Kind Hearts," stated Randy Sovey, President of Moline Rotary. "I appreciate the generosity of Moline Rotarians to help make sure each Moline School District student can stay warm this winter".


2012 marks the 3rd Annual Warm Hands from Kind Hearts initiative within Moline Rotary. The Moline Rotary Community Needs Committee continuously identifies additional opportunities to impact the citizens within the city of Moline and the Rock Island County area. "Moline Rotary and its 130 members will mark its 100th anniversary of service to the community in 2014," said Sovey. The club supports numerous service projects in the Quad Cities and through Rotary International."

Moline Rotarians will deliver the collected items to the Moline Schools the week of December 3.

The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.
