Image  At the March 7, 2013, meeting of the Alexandria Rotary Club, Rotarian Mike Johnson introduced guest speaker Carliss Stark. Carliss appeared on behalf of the United Way of Douglas & Pope Counties, and shared the impact of that organization's work. She noted that the top issue the agency is dealing with currently is hunger. The United Way serves 250-300 families monthly at its food drop and provides bags of food at area schools for youngsters who would otherwise go hungry over the weekends.
