In the midst of a disastrous winter storm that wreaked havoc over the State of Texas, including our Laredo community, Next Generation Rotarians rolled their sleeves and made an immediate action plan.
Club members met virtually to discuss and research which organizations were in dire need of volunteers, donations and resources to help those who were affected by the February storm in the Gateway City. Vice-president of Service, Grecia Grajeda, was in contact with local organizations who were mostly in need. 
At our emergency meeting, The Laredo Next Generation Rotary Club gathered funds from our membership and, within the hour, delivered a $365 check to the Laredo Community Fridge: a project that is giving back to the community after COVID-19 has brought a burden on many, including the unemployed. The funds donated to this project are used to buy groceries and other essential items that families and others will use free of charge. Due to the current situation, funds were used for those who did not have many resources during the winter storm.
The check was presented to Valerie Gonzalez, Laredo Community Fridge member, on Friday, February 19, 2021. Next Generation Rotarians that presented the check included the Club President, Corina Martinez, Vice-president of Service, Grecia Grajeda, and Vice-president of Public Image, David Andres Alegria. Ms. Gonzalez was honored that the club chose her project for contributing. All funds from the club were used to prepare meal kits for 200 residents in El Cenizo, Texas.
It is in the most challenging times that the community brings the best version of itself, and Next Generation Rotarians were honored to be a part of it and give back to those who are mostly in need!
