The Rotary Club of Hazleton announces that Immediate Past President Ron Avellino has made contributions to the programs of The Rotary International Foundation that qualify him as a Major Donor at level 1, marking his 10th Paul Harris Fellowship.
As a Major Donor, Avellino is among a dedicated group of humanitarians who have committed themselves to helping others less fortunate. This special group of persons who are changing lives of children, young people, and adults through a legacy of hope.
In appreciation for this investment in the future of humanity, the Trustees of the RI Foundation expressed their gratitude by presenting a crystal and diamond Major Donor lapel pin and pendant. The crystal is engraved and depicts doves bearing olive branches—universal symbols of peace. The presentation was made by Hazleton Rotary President Pat Ward at Wednesday's meeting.
Some needy children in the Greater Hazleton Area will be provided with new coats through the Hazleton Rotary Club Kidz Coatz Project which is sponsored and supported by The Hazleton Rotary Club Foundation. This project has been held annually since 2007.
Working with local retailers, brand new coats were purchased for children in need from all eight elementary/middle schools in the Hazleton Area School District. The coats are distributed to those children who are confidentially identified by their teachers.
