Grab n’ Go Lunch for Front line Workers Continues, Thank you to Partners
The Rotary Club of Montgomery/Rocky Hill and the Montgomery Business Association have teamed up to feed our front line hospital and emergency workers and support small, local food establishments.
Each donation of $10 buys one bag lunch, provided by a local business, and delivered to a local hospital. To date, Rotary and MBA have raised almost $14,500!
They are also looking for volunteers to deliver for the Grab & Go lunch program!
