The Rotary Club of Newport News worked with the Salvation Army to assemble over 2500 boxes for the Salvation Army to use during holiday activities. The club has been working with the Salvation Army for several years to help assemble the boxes. This was the largest number of boxes the club has been responsible for assembling and the number of volunteers from the club and their families finished the assembly in less than two hours. The event was organized by member Athena Robbins. The box night assembly was held in lieu of the weekly club lunch meeting.
