The Rotary Club of Woonsocket Honored for Philanthropy
Members of the Rotary Club of Woonsocket at the opening of Just for You
The Association of Fundraising Professionals honored The Rotary Club of Woonsocket as a Partner in Philanthropy with Community Care Alliance (CCA) at its annual National Philanthropy Day event. CCA nomination was made to members of the Rotary Club of Woonsocket for their volunteer work and tireless efforts to help fill gaps where there is a need in the community.
Colleen Joubert, Director of Communications & Development said, "This year, they took on a huge enterprise and created Just for You—a volunteer-run “clothes closet” with sidewalk access for children ages infant to seventeen at 245 Main Street. With this new resource, the Rotary has removed a stress for parents. Since opening, many families have picked up new and gently used clothes, shoes, toiletries, diapers and other items. The Rotary Club of Woonsocket is truly a partner, donating and volunteering for Community Care Alliance for well over 14 years."
"On behalf of the Rotary Club of Woonsocket, we are honored that Community Care Alliance would nominate our Club to be recognized as the recipient of this award! These project would not have been possible without the collaboration, motivation, and partnership with all of you!", said Nicole Brien, Rotary President.
The Woonsocket Rotary was recognized with other Partners in Philanthropy recipients at a virtual ceremony on November 18, 2021.
