Providing Outdoor Shelter 

Built a bus stop at the ITS-HUH homeless village location so homeless folks could catch CARTS to get into town.

Club News
Bastrop Rotary has been partnering for several years with a local organization that provides temporary residences for homeless families.  "In the Streets/Hands Up High" requires adults to be searching for work during their stay, provides skills training, and supports folks with meals while at the facility. Our Club, through the good services of members Rick Nalle, Norman Jones and others, constructed a hydroponics garden on the property earlier this year.  The fresh vegetables it produces are now supplementing the meals provided to ITS/HUH residents and to others needing food support.
 
The hydroponics garden was supported by our 2023-24 DAP Grant.  Between 20 and 30 residents will benefit from its produce.
Club President David Johnson dropped off the donations from our Club Social at the Bastrop County Emergency Food Pantry. Special thanks to our sponsors Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative, Rick Nalle, Mike Helmick and Mike and Jan Goebel and all Rotarians for putting Service Above Self!
