I am always amazed by how the Greene community pulls together to make things happen. Whether they are planning a community event or helping those in need, they seem to be able to “mobilize the troops” no matter the weather or circumstance. The Greene Rotary “Basket” program is no exception to that.
Each year at Christmas time, the Greene Rotary puts together baskets (well, boxes actually) for needy families. Each one is filled with food, clothing, blankets and wrapped presents.
Families apply for the program by completing an application distributed by service organization. On the form, they list ages, sizes and any specific items they need. The families are then “adopted” by other families and organizations.
While the Greene Rotary club coordinates the effort, they have a lot of help from the rest of the community.
