Please plan on attending to welcome Port Gardner Rotarian Jeffrey Hagar and local Rotaracter Morgan Crosby to share about another great International project several RD-5050 clubs have been participating in.

We’ll have the wonderful opportunity to hear about the “Stoves for Guatemala” project, and how it is positively impacting villages and lives!

Jeff Hagar has been engaged in this project for several years, both as a Rotarian, and through his Everett-based nonprofit, Hands for Peacemaking Foundation (which serves villages in northwest Guatemala).

About our speakers:

Jeff Hagar has three jobs.

He is the Interim Executive Director and Director of Operations/Community Development for Helping Hands Ministries International located in Bothell. Helping Hands operates thrift stores in Bothell, Snohomish and Lake Stevens. Their focus is to provide a means for local churches and organizations to help individuals and families with clothing and other household items. Helping Hands also provides financial recourses to their sister organization in Trujillo, Peru, Amor en Accion (Love in Action). Love in Action provides preschool education in impoverished areas of Trujillo as well as operates Women’s Skill Center to provide a path to financial freedom.

As noted above, Jeff is also the Executive Director of Hands for Peacemaking Foundation. A nonprofit located in Everett, Hands for Peacemaking serves the villages of Northwest Guatemala.

Jeff’s third job is a member to the Rotary Club of Everett Port Gardner. He is a past president and current chair of the Classic Car Raffle Committee.

​​​​​​​Morgan Crosby is a Rotaractor from Marysville. 

She currently serves as Snohomish County Rotaract club president. Her introduction to Rotary was through Rotary Youth Leadership Awards in 2017. Next year, she will be the US representative for the Rotaract district 5050.

When she is not doing work with Rotary she is a student at both Washington State University Everett and Everett Community College. Getting a degree in Integrated Strategic Communications, she plans to continue working with her current employer, LINC Northwest, after she graduates. LINC Northwest is a mentoring program based out of North Marysville.

Through all of these various avenues she continues to make others laugh and is hoping to become a professional comedian in the future. Her end goal is to host both Saturday Night Live and The Academy Awards.
