Once again, the Columbia Patuxent Rotary Club reaches out to Grassroots to help.
Motel Boxes were constructed, packed, and delivered to Grassroots by the Club on Friday. Boxes were filled with water, milk, crackers, pasta, cereal, etc., to enable a recipient to get through several days in a pinch. Grassroots has occasion to house individuals in motels from time to time, for reasons such as domestic violence, for example. Delivery of a motel box enables the recipient to get through a few days until more permanent and sustaining arrangements can be made.
Our Club raises funds to enable us to contribute to Grassroots and other non- profits in our community. Just last year, we contributed to Camp Attaway, Head Start, Gilchrist Hospice, Hope Works, Living in Recovery, and Neighbor Ride, to name just a few.
Friday was our last meeting at the Linden Hall location, where we have spent the last year. Starting on March 2, we will meet each Friday morning, from 7:30 – 8:30, at the Wilde Lake Interfaith Center. If you would like to be part of something bigger than yourself, which does amazing things for the community, come check us out. I assure you that you will be warmly welcomed.
