At its April 2 meeting, the Board of Directors voted to approve the purchase of three grocery gift cards to address needs identified by the social worker for the Nashoba Regional School District.
 
“What wonderful news!  What a very special thing to have happen - these cards will mean so much to everyone who receives one,” said Brooke Clenchy, Superintendent of Schools. “The Rotary Club is simply an amazing organization - and this is but one more example of the kind of incredible things that they do - I'm so respectful of their generosity.”
 
Additionally, the board and the board of the endowment fund voted to purchase $1500 worth of grocery and restaurant gift cards to donate to the needy in our communities, in part due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The club donated gift cards to the Stow Food Pantry, the Bolton Community Fund, and WHEAT, a Clinton-based food pantry that serves Lancaster and surrounding towns. Restaurant gift cards from Emma’s, our primary meeting location, were used to pay for meals for local grocery store workers and other deserving citizens.
