We Proudly Support Our Troops

The Rotary Club of Roswell is proud to support our military men and women. To express our appreciation for their service and sacrifice, we try to make their deployment in conflict zones a bit more bearable by providing them with items that the military does not provide, or that the troops do not have ready access to. Over the past two years, we have sent over 200 packages, accompanied by school children’s letters, to our men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan.
