Since the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis, Thornbury-Clarksburg Rotarians have been highly motivated to help out in our community -- it's all part of who we are and what we do. After all, Rotary's motto is SERVICE ABOVE SELF.
For several weeks, we coordinated cart sanitation at our local Foodland store and organized food deliveries to vulnerable citizens. Many of you may have been among the 140 volunteers who carried out these tasks!
Working with partners like Beaver Valley Outreach and Beaver Valley Community School and the local churches, we have also supported several other local initiatives to provide support for struggling families by contributing food gift cards to the food packages being delivered to the families.
We know there is still much that needs to be done to help get us all through this. This work is currently our Rotary Club's prime focus, as we concentrate, along with our community partners, on supporting the families of our community.
Your support of Hope in the Valley will help us to maintain this important work. Thank you for your generosity.
KUDOS to our Hope in the Valley Community Partner!!
Heartfelt thanks to our amazing MAJOR SPONSORS...
