More about this campaign
Once again, The Springfield Township Rotary Club rolled up their sleeves and participated in Martin Luther King Day, by doing what they do best, “Service Above Self”. Mike Creeden and his kitchen staff at Sandy Run Country Club prepared a wonderful meal for Face to Face in Germantown. Joe Bonus of Bonus Marketing was a great help today with transport as were Rotary members who served the meal at Face to Face. Following the meal at Face to Face, Rotarian Claudia Campbell of Tabitha Harrier Concierge drove to Arcadia to pick-up donated items and then delivered them to Face to Face. To date our toiletry drive items total 2,141 and Rotary will have additional items for Face to Face during the month of January due to the generosity of the Springfield Democrats who also collected.
