Before Valentine’s Day, The Rotary Club of Westwood conducted its second drive this year for Circle of Hope, a shelter center in Needham. In their first one, at Christmas time, velvet lined boxes were filled with jewelry and cosmetic items.
During this drive, chaired by Lori Favreau, members filled several vans with clothing and comforters that will be distributed within 48 hours to disaster victims throughout the greater Boston area. Fifty bags were filled with cosmetics and toiletries donated from various sources to be delivered to the shelter. Working together, Westwood Rotarians also discovered that past president Bob Folsom curls a mean ribbon!
