One of Rotary Club of  West Chester President Mickey Hall's goals of her presidency was to develop a project for collecting and redistributing donated furniture to needy  individuals and families in Chester County.

Mickey's goal came to fruition recently when the Community Warehouse Project(CWP) was established in Downingtown. "Turning Empty Houses into Homes" is the objective of the project, sponsored by the Rotary Club of West Chester, E. Kahn Development Corp., and West Chester University Center for Community Solutions. Accepting and arranging some donated items on a recent Saturday were (seated front) Mickey Hall, Rotary Club president; Patty Jefferies, Ally Aurillo, and (standing from left) Val Jester, Eric Kuhn, Jeannie McGinn, Bill Friedman, John Lilley, Glenda Brion, board president of CWP; Catherine Friedman, Ebbie Alfree, Eric Rosle and Debi Friedman.
