For club members, serving the needs of the community includes supporting local non-profit organizations that fill a vital role in helping those most at risk. Last week members awarded Families for Freedom a grant in support of their mission is to transport victims of domestic abuse to safety.
 
 
Our community is blessed with many non-profit agencies dedicated to serving specific needs in the community. Some are small and some are sizeable. But, all with worthy missions that require support both financially and emotionally. Families for Freedom is one of those agencies. Unfortunately, domestic violence in our community does impact many families. The mission of Families to Freedom is to transport victims of domestic abuse to safety so that they can be with far away family or in a shelter. Last week, our club was pleased to provide a grant of $400 so that they can continue their mission.
 
We are proud to partner with other community organizations that share our values. Our annual fundraising, such as the flag program, Breakfast with Santa and others is intended to fund our club projects such as Bikes for Perfect Attendance, Dictionaries for 3rd Graders, End Polio Now, Scholarships, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards and Interact. We also like to be able to support community agencies whose missions are similar to ours including promoting peace and patriotism, supporting our low-income veterans and seniors, feeding the hungry, ending polio and other debilitating disease and of course supporting the environment, literacy and youth.
