DESOTO—Approximately 15 students from DeSoto High School’s Rotary Interact club will join Operation Care International on Saturday, December 15, 2018 at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. to assist in packaging/sorting coats and toys for the benefit of less fortunate families through their Christmas Event. DHS Interact President Jadan Crow stated “we wanted to help out and this group could really use our help, so it was a good fit.”
Interact clubs bring together young people ages 12-18 to develop leadership skills while discovering the power of Service Above Self. Interact clubs organize at least two projects every year, one that helps their school or community and one that promotes international understanding. While Interact clubs receive guidance from individual Rotary clubs, they govern and support themselves.
Operation Care International is described as the flagship for providing love and hope for the homeless and impoverished. The Christmas Gift event is their vehicle for combating spiritual and economic poverty. The event draws thousands to a central location allowing Operation Care to connect guests to advocate partners on a large and efficient scale that will help them escape homelessness and poverty.
During Operation Care, DHS students will assist in packaging/sorting coats and toys for the benefit of less fortunate families.
