Byesville Rotary is a service club located in Guernsey County, Ohio. For the last 25 years, our club has provided Christmas Food Baskets to needy families in the Rolling Hills School District which covers the southern portion of Guernsey County. Our goal is to supply a box with a turkey and other perishables such as milk, butter, and eggs and a second box with canned goods and other nonperishables to each family applying for our food baskets. The two boxes of food typically cost us about $40.00 and should feed a family of 4 for several days. Our goal is to serve 200 families.
Because of COVID-19, we are unable to sponsor our regular fundraisers. Guernsey County is located in the Appalachian region of Ohio. Many of our residents struggle to put food on their tables. Many of the Rolling Hills students depend on school lunches which will not be available over the Christmas break.
