It's the season of giving and the Rotary Club of Brazil has done its part.

On Wednesday, the local organization donated money to Serving on the Streets (S.O.S.) to help pay for its shoe program.

S.O.S. Assistant Director Heather Hopkins was on hand to receive the donation. She said her organization began delivering shoes to needy children Wednesday.

"It might not seem like a big deal, but they really need them," Hopkins told the Rotarians.

Rotarian Lena Khudayeva said she met with S.O.S. Director Jenni Chamberlain recently and the two discussed the donation program.

"We agreed to donate and help complete the project," Khudayeva said. "We were grateful we were able to help. I think it's a great situation."

She said last year, S.O.S. delivered shoes and socks to approximately 100 children. This year, the number doubled, as S.O.S. gave away shoes and socks to 150 children through its Kids Club and 50 through its Youth Group.

The Kids Club meets regularly during Saturdays, while the Youth Group meets on Wednesdays.

One great club helping another great club. Now when you hear "it's for the kids", we know that it is not just words from the Rotary, but it is backed up with action. Thank you Rotary, and thank you SOS for serving our kids.
