The Rotary Club of Spruce Grove has answered the community's call for support as we grapple with the public health, social, and economic impacts of the COVID-19 public health emergency.  In April, our club members volunteered in many ways to help those in need.  Highlights include picking up hampers at the food bank to deliver them to those who couldn't pick them up for themselves, delivering brown bag lunches to families in need of nutritional support, assisting Canadian Blood Services to ensure their recent donation clinic was healthy and safe for donors, and providing messages of support to front-line workers.
Thanks to our club's financial supporters and the generosity of Rotarians, our club was able to support the following community organizations providing vital relief services to the people of Spruce Grove and surrounding area.
