Reach Out Sun Lakes continues support for The Crossing

Ellen Engel Monthly food collection drives for The

Crossing Food Bank in Chandler have begun to increase now that most of

the summer

has passed, and the results for September were encouraging, indeed. By deadline day for this issue, generous Sun Lakes residents contributed 417.5 pounds of food and $320 in cash. Contributed dollars are used to pay for

basic foods not normally donated, and all items are ultimately channeled to needy families in Chandler. Any Sun Lakes resident may contribute

at established pickup points sponsored by the Sun Lakes Duplicate Bridge Club and the Sun Lakes Democratic Club. Other local organizations, including the Sun Lakes Jewish congregation and Unity of Sun Lakes, also make regular contributions and donations; your organization can do so, as well. But membership in local clubs and congregations is not a criterion. In fact, many individual donors show up from all over Sun Lakes at the two club-sponsored pickup points. The Bridge Club pickup takes place at the

Risen Savior Lutheran Church on Alma School Road from 12:30-1:20 p.m. on the fi rst Monday of each month, and the Sun Lakes Democratic

Club accepts contributions on the second Monday at 6:30 p.m. at the Sun Lakes Country Club (SLCC). For those who cannot make it to the formal pickup locations at specifi c times, a collection point is also open during normal business hours at the SLCC. What is the practical signifi cance of the

benefi ts you’re providing with your donations? A single contributed dollar will provide a total of about four nutritious meals for a needy recipient or family. We cannot measure the “pound of food” value in terms of specifi c meals, but it is unquestionably high, and our Sun Lakes community continues to have signifi cant

impact on meeting the need,

both through the monthly Reach Out food drive and with volunteers who work at the food bank itself, located at 1368 Arizona Avenue in Chandler. The Crossing always needs additional volunteer help. If this direct participation activity appeals to you, please call Diane Dykstra at The Crossing at 480-857- 2296 for information. For further information about Reach Out

Sun Lakes, please contact Ellen Engel at 480- 802-0425 or email her at Rosellen10@live. com. Again, thank you Sun Lakes, and please keep up the good work! 

San Tan Crown Rotary volunteers

Tom Adamson San Tan Crown Rotary members and kids

from their Chandler Boys and Girls Interact Club joined 1200 volunteers to pack over 250,000 meals for starving children. The event held on August 24 was organized by Feed My Starving Children and the Phoenix Rotary Club that celebrates their 100th anniversary next year. Feed My Starving Children is a non-profi t

Christian organization committed to feeding God’s children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals specifi cally formulated for malnourished children and we ship the meals to nearly 70 countries around the world. San Tan Crown Rotary is Sun Lakes’

afternoon Rotary club. To fi nd out how to join

Welcome back Shutterbugs! Our October

spotlight photo belongs to Linda Davis. This portrait of

“Big Boy,”

as Linda affectionately calls him, was taken at our very own Phoenix Zoo. Linda took this shot using her Canon 60D with a 300mm lens. Linda chose to add a dark background to enhance the tiger’s gorgeous features (and gaze)

as well as the

crop tool to adjust for composition using Photoshop Elements 10. Linda was awarded Print Image of the Year 2013 and Photographer of the Year 2013, Class B. Well done, Linda! Come
