Operation Christmas Child
When David Keith was elected president of the North Mecklenburg Rotary Club this year, one of his top priorities was to pursue the club’s motto of “Service Above Self.” One way Rotary is doing this is through its involvement with Operation Christmas Child, a Samaritan’s Purse International project that fills shoeboxes with toys and gifts and delivers them at Christmas to needy kids around the world.
Keith, a sales manager at Cornelius-based Artisan Signs and Graphics, says to help as many kids as possible, he urges all of the Rotary’s 100 members to participate. Last year, the group filled 85 shoeboxes with the help of Rotary members and students in Hough High School’s Interact Club.
But that’s not the only way Rotary is giving back. Keith says the group also raises money throughout the year and uses the funds to buy toys as well as turkeys, hams, and other fixings for local families during the holidays. Last year, the group helped 27 families with 85 kids.
“We’re definitely committed to the North Meck area,” says Keith. “We take a lot of pride in that our club is full of leaders who give back to the community.”
