Downtown Rotary Grant: Weekend Care Package Program

April 26, 2022

This grant from the Downtown Rotary has made a tremendous impact to our families. The Weekend Care Bag program provides food items each Friday for up to 35 families. Chatham Baptist Church, in addition, provides funds to support the efforts of this grant. 

The comfort and security the food provides our students allows them to be able to focus at school on learning. We are so grateful for the efforts of the Downtown Rotary in supporting our Ridgely families. 

We greatly appreciate the contributions and support provided by the Downtown Rotary Club for this effort and more. This grant was successful because so many students in the building directly benefited from receiving the weekend care bags.
