Designs to Fight Hunger Project

Designs to Fight Hunger is a project building structures out of canned foods and cereal boxes.  Working with Old Dominion Freight, Fox 8, and the Salvation Army, the High Point Rotary Club built an Old Dominion Freight Lines truck at Hanes Mall. The result is amazing!  Working with the Furnitureland, Thomasville, Kernersville, Winston-Salem and Clemmons Rotary Clubs, the structure is 18 feet long and 5 feet high using 4500 cans and cereal boxes.  Total raised for the High Point and Winston Salem Salvation Army is $23,000 Click here for the video.

Christmas for Kids on a String!

Today High Point Rotary entertained 80 children from 19 elementary schools in the greater High Point area.  Children came to High Point Rotary Club and enjoyed a nice lunch and were entertained by Steve Brannan who is a professional Yo-Yo-ist.  He shared a brief Christmas story before they got to sit on Sants’s lap.
