Flat River Outreach Ministries serves low income individuals and families in the Lowell area. One of their programs, Neighbor to Neighbor, provides the financial support and volunteer manpower needed to winterize and repair home hazards for neighbors living in the poorest conditions. And one of the greatest sources of funding and volunteer manpower for the program is the Rotary Club of Lowell.
After being awarded a $2000 matching District Local Grant to support the program, two dozen Lowell Rotarians, Interactors, and their family members rolled up their sleeves and got to work. Plumbing and floor repairs, ramp construction, home winterization and fall cleanup were just a few of the jobs that were tackled by the volunteers. In the end, eight families were the direct beneficiaries from their efforts. But the two dozen Rotarians, Interactors and their family members who provided the service benefited even more, knowing that their hard work improved the quality of life for so many in their community.
A fine example of Rotarians making a difference. Congratulations Lowell! Job well done!
