USC Union Rotaract Club Helps “Stock the Pantry”

The USC Union Rotaract Club is teaming up with Elle Bell Cafe and Carnegie Library to help United Way of the Piedmont “Stock The Pantry”. Rotaract students decorated boxes to place at ‘drop off’ locations at the USC Union Bookstore, Main Building, Central Building, Academic Success Center, Carnegie Library, and at Elle Bell Cafe. The non-perishable items will be collected and donated to United Way of the Piedmont to distribute to various organizations in Union County during the holiday months. The last day to donate will be November 19th. IMG_2289The Rotary Club of Union sponsors the Union High School Interact Club and proud to sponsor the Rotaract Club now, as well. The Rotary club will offer support, opportunities, and project work. Rotary members are business and professional leaders that make up a global network of 1.2 million Rotarians that belong to more than 34,000 Rotary Clubs in over 200 countries.

Rotaract caters to college age students to help them evolve with their leadership and professional skills to use after they graduate. There are currently 250,792 Rotaractors in 10,904 Rotaract clubs in 184 countries in the world. Rotaract clubs bring together college students to exchange ideas with leaders in the community, develop leadership and professional skills, and have fun through service. Meetings are held every first and third Wednesday at 12:00 on campus and all college-aged students are encouraged to join. The club will host fundraisers, do community service projects, and will assist the Rotary Club of Union with projects.
