Our club has awarded a $5,000 community grant to FACES to fund a cooler site for its County Line location.
“Our Club is extremely proud to be part of this project, and we are excited to help FACES be able to add a cooler to its County Line location,” said Joy Stump, Rotary Club President. “During the past two years of the pandemic, FACES has stepped up to support those in need in our community and we are glad to help them in their mission.”
The safe storage of a greater volume of perishable food will permit the Abilene location to serve its growing client base.
“The Rotary Club of Farmville just made our day, week, and our month!” said FACES co-presidents Joanna and Paul Baker. “Your generosity will enable FACES to continue to upgrade our services to those in need in our area.”
Our newly established Annual Community Service Grant aims to help organizations whose activities promote and enhance the quality of life for citizens of the Town of Farmville and Prince Edward County and beyond. We had many outstanding grant applications and the choice was a tough one.
In addition to the $5000 awarded to FACES, we also awarded $1000 each to two other finalists: the Waterworks Players to help them assemble a storage building and workshop, and the Friends of the Barbara Rose Johns Farmville-Prince Edward Community Library to grow its summer reading program.
We thank the many organizations who submitted applications and hope we can help more of you in the future!
