The Rotary Club of Saco Bay Sunset met on August 30th at the Old Orchard Beach Rec Department. The Club received a District 7780 grant to purchase items to fill 100 bags of personal items for human sex trafficked survivors. Separate funds were received to fill 100 bags of stuffed animals, toys, toothbrushes and other activities based things for children. Community members from Saco, OOB, Portland Kennebunk, Hermen and even Winter Park, FL showed up to fill the bags, write motivational notes and support human sex trafficked survivors and families. Carey Nason, Courage Lives/St. Andre Home and board members of the organization were in attendance as well. Carey took the 200!!!!! bags to Courage Lives/St. Andre for survivors and their children. It was a beautiful and worthy gathering that focused on Service Above Self. There will be a fundraiser at JJ's Restaurant soon...stay tuned! The informational link
