PRESIDENTIAL FOCUS
In addition to our other local charities that we donate to, funds raised will go to two organizations focused on children.
 
The first is The Hunger Coalition. This is a local group that is working to mobilize our community to TAKE ACTION to address the complex problem of hunger and food insecurity through Advocacy, Coordination, and Education.  My concentration and request will be specifically concentrated on children's hunger.  1 out of every 5 children in America struggle with hunger and our region is especially affected.  Please see https://www.facebook.com/hungermonroe/ for more information.
 
The second is Ninos del Lagos, a non-profit organization that works to give Guatemalan children the support, tools and experiences they will need to care for themselves and for Guatemala’s future.  I am not sure that many of you know, but my wife and I adopted our daughter 12 years ago from Guatemala.   Education, confidence, and support are definitive building blocks that children need to flourish.  Many children in Guatemala are raised in poverty, subjected to child labor, and other atrocities.   We have been supporting Ninos del Lagos as a family and seen it grow.  It is supported by local rotary clubs in Guatemala,  Please see more information at   https://www.ninosdellago.org/whatisninosdellago/ 
 
 
 
Gina Bertucci

The Rotary Club of the Stroudsburgs will honor Gina Bertucci with the Alex “Buzz” Bensinger Lifetime Achievement Award at its annual auction at the historic Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort on March 22, 2018.

Bertucci will be the fourth recipient of the Rotary Club’s Alexander Bensinger Award, which recognizes Monroe County residents who are successful in their vocation and known for their community service, selflessness or philanthropy. The award was established in 2015 in the name of well-known Stroudsburg attorney and Rotarian Buzz Bensinger.

Bertucci was born in Monroe County and has been active in several community and professional organizations including the East Stroudsburg Salvation Army, the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau, Mt. Pocono Rotary Fly-In Breakfast, Developmental Education Services Foundation, East Stroudsburg University Property Board, Friends of Northampton Community College, Monroe County Planning Commission Board, National Geographic Scenic Wild Delaware River Project, Northern Tier Symphony,  the Pocono Arts Council, Habitat for Humanity, Middle Smithfield Township Economic Development Committee and Greg Moyer Defibrillator Fund.
