For the ninth consecutive year, Sturbridge Rotary Club donated funds to organizations providing meals for families in need in the Tri-Community area. This year funds were designated for the Tri-Community Church Collaborative (TCCC), the Saint John Paul II Food Pantry and for needy families whose children attend Burgess Elementary School in Sturbridge. The latter program is coordinated by Lisa Meunier, school nurse at Burgess. All Rotary funds were donated directly to the Food Pantry which coordinates the food supplies.
Sturbridge Rotary Club also conducts an annual fundraiser in June to support the Saint John Paul II Food Pantry. One of Sturbridge Rotary’s goals is to help alleviate hunger in our local communities. So far in 2016, Rotary has contributed $4,100 toward this goal.
