HoneybeeRead to "Bee" the Change
Read to help honeybees and families in need this summer as part of our conservation reading theme!  The Rotary Club of Middleboro will donate up to $500 towards Heifer International's Gift of Honeybees program, which could mean providing up to 15 families in need with honeybees, a hive, box, and training in beekeeping techniques.  Every hour you read brings us closer to reaching the goal of helping struggling honeybees and families thrive. You have the power to "bee" the change in their lives just by reading!  Let's see how many families we can help by the end of the summer.

Each gift will increase the global honeybee population to support the environment, boost income through sales of honey, wax and pollen, and stimulate growth of families’ crops through pollination.  Generously sponsored by the Rotary Club of Middleboro.
