In light of the special needs of many in our community, Wednesday, July 15th the Rotary Club of Sandy Springs presented the Community Assistance Center (CAC) with a cash donation of over $1300. John Neill, the 2020-2021 president of the Rotary Club and four other Rotarians made the formal presentation at the CAC Mini-Market Food Pantry at 10:30am. Immediately after the presentation, those in attendance were given a tour of the facilities.
The Rotary Club of Sandy Springs is here to benefit the citizens of Sandy Springs and we see the Community Assistance Center as being a chief priority.
If you are interested in lending a helping-hand, please visit either of these two great Sandy Springs organizations.
