On Saturday, Nov. 19 volunteers from Plano West Rotary Club (PWRC) continued their support of Bed Start, a Plano nonprofit that provides beds and other large household furnishings free of cost to individuals in financial crisis. These individuals are often single mothers, military veterans, international refugees, and victims of domestic violence.
  This month marks one year since PWRC started supporting the nonprofit once a month with volunteers. Bed Start picks up and delivers furniture twice a week year-round, and always needs more volunteers and donations to be able to serve more families.   By providing monthly volunteers, Plano West is supporting Rotary's focus on hygiene as well as saving mothers and children. On this Saturday PWRC sent four volunteers led by service project coordinator Jennifer Shertzer.
The volunteers served a total of 15.75 hours, and helped deliver a trailer full of furniture to two households in north Dallas. Way to go, Plano West Rotary, for practicing “service above self!”
