In the spirit of the season, the Rotary Club of McMinnville and Warren County High School’s Interact Club are partnering for the 41st annual Share A Christmas Dinner Program. 

Rotarians C.K. Cayce-Taylor and Chad Graves are spearheading this year’s initiative to bring a full-course Christmas meal to the tables of nearly 300 Warren County families. 

Anyone who may want to give in this effort can make a donation via: 

Mail: Share A Christmas Dinner, P.O. Box 7001, McMinnville TN, 37111

PayPal: McMinnvilleRotary

In person: Cleaners Express, Security Federal, or Graves Family Pharmacy

Please make all donations payable to the McMinnville Rotary Community Fund. There is no minimum amount, so a donation of any size is appreciated. Memorial donations are welcome as well.

The meals will consist of 3-pound ham, 5-pound bag of potatoes, green beans, corn, sugar, corn meal, cake mix and frosting, macaroni and cheese, margarine, ½ gallon of milk, a dozen eggs, bread, fruit cocktail, peanut butter, and tea.

Graves said, “Applications have been accepted through the Warren County Department of Humans Services throughout the last month and Nov. 30 was the deadline. Sharon Patrick will be going through applications and will be organizing those. She will then contact all of those who applied and are approved. She has been a great asset in this effort as she has much experience.”

“I did this as an Interact Student in high school and remember how much fun it was as a service project.” said Graves “This is the 41st year of Share A Christmas Dinner, and we want to continue the tradition of Noon Rotary giving back to the community. It makes it even more meaningful to partner with the Warren County High School Interact Club in this effort.”

For any questions regarding donations or other ways to partner in this effort, please call C.K. Cayce-Taylor or Chad Graves at 931-58-SHARE.
