Great Time Stamping Out Hunger!

Stamp Out Hunger

The club had a blast at the Stamp Out Hunger project this weekend! A huge THANK YOU to all the volunteers who showed up to help us run two post office drop off sites, including several members of the Rotary Club of the Gulf Beaches and a handful of Two Hangry Chicks volunteers! That was a massive amount of food donations we sorted and loaded, and we most certainly could not have done it without you!
