Cantonment Rotary Provides Thanksgiving Meals For Nearly 1,400 People

November 28, 2019

Over 1,500 people can enjoy a complete Thanksgiving meal this year thanks to the members and friends of the Cantonment Rotary Club.

Wednesday the club distributed everything for a turkey meal to 272 families North Escambia area, including Quintette and Carver Park. The recipients were chosen with the help of local school guidance counselors who helped identify families that might need a little help this time of year.

The Cantonment Rotary project continues to grow each year. In 2017, they provided meals for 545 people, and in 2018 it was 988 people.

The Publix at Nine Mile provided generous support for the Cantonment Rotary project.

    I know the lady and her Granddaughter that is in the photo on the Headline page. Ms. Miriam has went through several medical issues in the past few months but doesn’t let that stop her from taking care of not only one, but two Granddaughters, both under the age of 7. She continues to push forward each and every day and is a remarkable caring woman. If any one deserves help right now, she certainly does. I am happy for you Ms. Miriam and hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
