Aid for International Students in Athens
Photo is from Pres. Elect Sheila Mark.
     International Students are having a difficult time this summer in Athens because of the pandemic.  The Athens Rotary Club has joined other individuals, institutions, and charity organization in Athens, to help out.  Rotarians Betsy Baringer, Diane McVey, and Pres. Elect Sheila Mark and her husband Max Mark joined a food drive on Monday Jun. 22, donning masks and greeting the donors (See photo above).  Sheila reported that there was a "wonderful turn-out.   Thanks so much to everyone who came by and sent food and personal care items, as well as money.  We filled 2 vehicles and collected about $900.  Everyone thanked us for being there and it felt so good to know we are part of such a generous community that rallies around our students in such a difficult time, difficult for us all."   
         There are plans being developed to repeat the event several times during this summer at specific times to be announced.  Interested person's can donate money by sending a check made out to The Athens Rotary Foundation with memo: International Student Emergency Fund.  Send the check to:
