$10,000 donation enables local non-profit to purchase a van.
Every three years the Rotary Club of Jasper selects a local Charity of Choice.
“This commitment signifies that 60 percent of all of the club’s fund raising efforts during this three year period will go to its Charity of Choice,” said Judi Brown, current president of the Rotary Club of Jasper, Indiana.
The club is currently committed to supporting TRI-CAP until June 30, 2017, and recently donated $10,000 for the organization to purchase a 2014 Dodge Caravan.
“TRI-CAP appreciates the van very much, as it is the only vehicle available to our staff to use outside of our weatherization program vehicles,” said Joyce Fleck, executive director, TRI-CAP. “The van will be used for staff home visits, staff training, transporting materials and so forth.”
TRI-CAP’s mission is to empower people in our communities to accept responsibility for achieving personal and economic well-being by providing health, housing, and educational services.
The Rotary Club of Jasper, Indiana is part of Rotary International.
