With one of the largest grants in it's history, the Rotary Club buys meals at a pre-arranged cost from our restaurant partners.  The meals are delivered to the Homeless Solutions facility to feed the 65 residents who are sheltering in place.  Please help us continue this program by donating to our GoFundMe account.  All funds will go toward feeding members of our community through local restaurants.
