WEEK 3 - JULY 17

Our Rotary Story this week is from the Rotary Club of Flagler Beach.  Several years ago after the economic downfall of 2008 they discovered there were hundreds of migrant families in the Pierson, Florida community in need of food for their families. The Club partnered with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, the Matanzas High School Interact Club and the San Jose Mission of St. Peter’s Church, along with volunteer members from the community, distributing food to provide approximately 1,400 meals to needy families each month.

 The Rotarians of the Flagler Beach Rotary Club are truly “People of Action…making a difference” in the community!
