During the District Conference, "Rotary: Making a Difference", on Friday, July 27th, we put together 400 bags for Magdelene Omaha/Thistle Lights. These new beginning bags will provide three days of much needed personal supplies. Magdalene Omaha/Thistle Lights is a survivor-led program of healing, recovery, and economic empowerment for women who experienced sex trafficking/prostitution, abuse, and addiction.  (www.magadeleneomaha.org
