Day of Service - Second Wednesday
Beginning August 2019, the Rotary Club of Plain Township will NOT meet on the second Wednesday of every month (except Jan 2020). 
On this Day of Service, members are encouraged to individually or collectively volunteer their time and talents to benefit our community.
Service Project: Backpack for Kids
On the second Wednesday of every month, Plain Rotarians will pack backpacks for children in need at the Stark County Hunger Task Force headquarters in downtown Canton. Sign up here
Designed specifically to target childhood hunger, every month the Backpack for Kids Program supplies crucial weekend meals to over 2,200 school-aged children at five local elementary schools in three Stark County school districts. Students at risk of weekend hunger receive a bag of food from which they can easily assemble four healthy, non-perishable, and kid-friendly meals to sustain them over the weekend. Students are identified by their participation in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), through which they receive free and reduced lunches during the school week (Monday through Friday).
