On a smoke-filled Monday morning, thirteen Drouin Rotarians/partners, our Assistant Governor Peter Dell and, Sally Dell (Warragul Rotary), four Drouin Lions and five Ambulance Vic offices (on leave) commenced the process of de-badging, sorting and boxing the hundreds of items of secondhand uniforms donated by service members from across Victoria. And there is a mountain of them. Over seventy hours of service in this first effort...and most took a box of items home for later consideration. Two Rotarians spent six hours de-badging shirts that night ... another 12 hours!
Rotary's 'Donations-in-Kind' will be pleased to accept and dispatch items overseas. The Ambulance Vic group will send the blue shirts to a school in Nepal while the jumpers will go to a Lions project in the Sudan. And that too is just the start.
