E-Club and Interact Team up for Service Project

Monday, November 7, 2016. The Rotary E-Club of District 7710 and their sponsored Interact Club from the School for Creative Studies in Durham had a great time volunteering at the Goodwill Community Foundation (GCF) in Durham.  During their service project the Clubs helped assemble over 200 school kits. GCF, a Durham based tax-exempt organization focuses on creating opportunities for a better life, by partnering with tier one elementary schools and youth programs to provide school kits to children. Each school supply kit distributed by GCF is valued at approximately $5.00. GCF has provided approximately 34,000 such kits since beginning the project in 2001. GCF and Rotary understand the importance of providing opportunities that encourage and enable students to complete each school year successfully. Such volunteer opportunities strengthen Rotary’s engagement in communities where Rotarians live, work and provide service to others.

Interact donates to Alzheimer’s

Cleveland Interact donates to Alzheimer’s Project

The Cleveland High School Interact Club presented a $500 donation to the Johnston County Alzheimer’s Music and Memory Project, a collaborative effort between several Johnston County Rotary Clubs.

The goal of the Johnston County Alzheimer’s Music and Memory Project is to make music and memory therapy available to all people with Alzheimer’s disease in Johnston County.

Music and memory therapy is based upon a very simple premise. By taking an iPod loaded with a music library personalized to the person with Alzheimer’s disease and having them listen to that music it can unlock memories in their mind. The musical favorites tap deep memories not lost to dementia and can bring residents and clients back to life, enabling them to feel like themselves again, to converse, socialize, and stay lucid.

Members of the Cleveland High School Interact Club said they are proud to have been able to contribute to such a worthy cause.
