The Rotary Club of Grand Island wrapped up our Afghan Evacuees Refugee Welcome Home project on Saturday March 26th by cleaning and furnishing an apartment for a family of 7. The Rotary Club collected donations of household items and funds in order to furnish and set up the home over the past 3 months. We are very Thankful for the generosity of our community.
Volunteers from Rotary Club of Grand Island, joined by 2 from UB Rotaract, 3 from M&T Bank and friends of Rotary turned out Saturday. In a little more than 6 hours a bare apartment was turned into a well-appointed home for parents and 5 children with ages from six months to 11 years.
