The Kishwaukee Sunrise Rotary Club recently awarded $4,000 to Voluntary Action Center to help with expenses the organization incurred in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Some of the expenses included safety equipment for the staff such as gloves and hand sanitizer, and additional food to assure continual delivery of meals in case of shortages at local grocery stores.

The grant, written by member Marilyn Stromborg, was submitted to the District Rotary organization. It was selected for funding because it addresses the goal of community service.

The Voluntary Action Center offers Meals on Wheels, nutrition programs, community transit services and catering services.

Kishwaukee Sunrise Rotary members deliver Meals on Wheels during April and October each year. They have been participating in this service project since 1996. (Source: Shaw Media
