The Rotary Club of Effingham County recently inducted and chartered a new student Interact club at Ebenezer Middle School.
EMS Interact students Annsley Durden, Destiney Grubbs, Alexis Kopp, Skylar McGee and Cheyenne Taylor attended the induction ceremony at a recent Rotary club meeting. They were joined by EMS teachers and Interact club facilitators Jennifer Spitko and Christie Durden.
The students were presented a plaque by Julian Diaz Jr., the Rotary district chairman for Interact clubs.
The EMS Interact club volunteers monthly with the seniors at the Effingham Care Center, according to Spitko. Also, club members raised funds to give a teddy bear to every resident of the care center on Valentine’s Day. EMS Interact’s major project this year is raising money for school supplies for children in a school in Zimbabwe the club sponsors, Spitko said.
Interact also plans to hold a pet food and supply drive this spring and donate what they collect to the Effingham County Animal Shelter.
