Rotoract Club brings Christmas cheer to The Home Place The Holmes Community College Rotoract Club, advised by Assistant Librarian Jennifer Smith, recently collected Angel Tree items for The Home Place and delivered them on Friday, Dec. 11. The Home Place is an assisted living facility in Madison, and over the past several years, different Holmes organizations from the Ridgeland Campus have helped make sure the residents there have a merrier Christmas.
The Rotoract Club is a service organization that is in the process of being chartered at the Holmes Ridgeland Campus. Sponsored by the Madison-Ridgeland Rotary Club, Rotoract brings students together to do service activities in Madison County and the surrounding areas. The club meets twice a month to promote leadership, professional development, and service among college age students. With more than 8,00 clubs in 167 countries, Rotaract members are helping to lead change in communities around the globe. With the club being brand new this fall, the Angel Tree collection for The Home Place was the first community service project Rotoract conducted.
