Holiday greetings, Edina Rotarians!

The Rotary Club of Edina is once again collecting holiday gifts for families in need in our community. Rotarian Jean Morrison is spearheading the Holiday Giving Program, and asks that members bring UNWRAPPED gifts and gift cards for children of any age (infant all the way through teens) as well as gifts for moms, dads, and families, to the Edina Country Club in December. This year, gift cards were also requested for teen gifts. The donations can be dropped off at the Rotary meetings Dec. 7 or 14, or at the Holiday Party on Wednesday, Dec. 20. Cash or check donations are also welcome. Jean will take the funds donated and buy gift cards or other gifts to be donated as well. This year, the organizations benefiting from the Edina Rotary Holiday Giving Program will be:
 
Cornerstone—every year for the holidays, Cornerstone hosts the Holiday Shop for the families they serve. The Holiday Shop gives children from abusive homes the opportunity to shop for gifts for their parents and siblings. Cornerstone is a nonprofit agency that serves adults and children who  have been impacted by domestic violence, sexual violence and/or human trafficking. Cornerstone believes that together, we can ease the stress of the season and make the holidays brighter for families who are rebuilding their lives.
 
66 West—is 39 apartment homes for youth who have experienced homelessness. Located in Edina, the apartments opened in May 2017. The Community Room at 66 West was the 2016–2017 Signature Project for the Edina Rotary Foundation. 66 West was a project of Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative, partnering with the City of Edina, Hennepin County and several local organizations.
