The Rotary Club of La Verne adopted David & Margaret’s Home in La Verne for Valentine’s Day. The Club gathered on Thursday, February 11th to put together 50 personal care packages for the young women who reside at David & Margaret’s.

The idea for the care packages came from Lyn Childress, chair of La Verne Rotary Community Services. The club was trying to come up with a thoughtful service project for Valentine’s Day and Lyn did not miss a beat. She said, “I
thought it would be a nice thing to do for the girls, and I know they will be so appreciative even if we do something small.‚ÄĚ

Lyn purchased supplies for the care package, which included a shower caddy, lip balm, lotion, body wash, face scrub, a loofah, and candy. Men, women, spouses and even little Emma Dilley, daughter of Rotarian Chris Dilley, helped put
together the care packages in assembly line fashion. The care packages will be delivered to David & Margaret’s before Valentine’s Day. 

The Rotary Club of La Verne meets every Thursday at 7:30 a.m. at Hillcrest located at 2705 Mountain View Drive in La Verne.
