Members of the Lebanon Noon Rotary Club donated various needed items to Empower Me Day Camp as part of the Club’s service project in the month of March.

Items were presented to Michelle Hill, executive director of Empower Me, prior to the club’s weekly meeting Tuesday at the Lebanon Golf & Country Club.

Empower Me is a local nonprofit organization that offers help to people with disabilities. The Empower Me Day Camp program runs in the summer for children and young adults with mild to moderate physical, developmental or mental disabilities ages 5-21.

The day camp features sports, music and drama, arts and crafts, water games, nature and outdoors activities. It is staffed with teachers, occupational and physical therapists, speech language pathologists and college students pursuing a career in healthcare or education to offer a safe, controlled play environment with a high staff-to-camper ratio.

The goal is maximize each child’s abilities through specially designed activities. The camp lasts three weeks in June and three weeks in July.

Each month, members of the Rotary Club participate in a service project that benefits the community. A list of needed items was presented to each member of the club, and throughout the month members brought in the various items.

Laura Headley, president-elect of the Lebanon Noon Rotary Club, presented the items to Hill on behalf of the Rotary Club.
