The Holmes Community College Rotoract Club, advised by Assistant Librarian Jennifer Smith, recently collected Angel Tree items for The Home Place and delivered them on Wednesday, Dec. 7. The Home Place is an assisted living facility in Madison, and over the past several years, different Holmes organizations from the Ridgeland Campus have helped make sure the residents there have a merrier Christmas.

Sponsored by the Madison-Ridgeland Rotary Club, Rotoract brings students together to do service activities in Madison County and the surrounding areas. The club meets twice a month to promote leadership, professional development, and service among college age students. With more than 8,00 clubs in 167 countries, Rotaract members are helping to lead change in communities around the globe.
