During a check presentation ceremony at the Coach Stop Restaurant, club officials made two large donations to the Liberty House and the Sonshine Soup Kitchen.
Rotarian Deb Waitt said the Londonderry Rotary learned about the organization last year, when Keith Howard, executive director of the Liberty House, spoke at a monthly Rotary meeting. Waitt said the club made its first donation to the Liberty House in 2013. This week the Rotary presented Howard with a check for $11,624.
“Having these funds in the bank will allow us to focus on our clients,” Howard said Tuesday, noting that day was a particularly important one for him as it marked his seventh year of sobriety.
“It will be nice not to have to worry about where our next buck is coming from,” she said, thanking the Rotary for its support.
