Fifteen members of the Los Alamos High School Interact Club, a Rotary service organization, sorted and organized food, water, and hygiene products Thursday afternoon, assisting Rotary Club President Oliver Morris pack supplies for delivery to the Navajo Nation.
The Interactors sorted supplies for several families who require home delivery; the other supplies will be delivered to the Huerfano Chapter House near Farmington for distribution. This is made possible by a Rotary District 5520 grant received by the Rotary Club of Los Alamos whose members are partnering with members in three Albuquerque clubs.
On Nov. 20 and Dec. 4, Los Alamos Rotarians will deliver the supplies, which fill a large trailer. A pallet of food packed during Rotary’s October Meals of Hope project will be included.
Morris, impressed by the “wonderful” teens, said they “made short work of many goods and helped me sort in just 33 minutes!”
