(Millsboro) (May 26, 2020) — The Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club has a long history of supporting the work done by the Oak Orchard Boys and Girls Club. When recently notified that the Boys and Girls Club were having difficulties getting certain supplies needed for its arts and crafts activities, Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club member, and Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Dover International Speedway, Mark Rossi, leveraged a relationship with Staples to obtain the needed supplies.
By partnering together, Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club and Staples were able to donate over $400 worth of supplies to the Oak Orchard Boys and Girls Club. The donation included needed items like glue, construction paper, crayons, washable markers, colored pencils, watercolors, and giant glue sticks. Staples also donated 25 COVID Time Capsules to the Boys and Girls Club at no charge.
“Social limitations aside, we are still able to leverage our relationships within the community to address a need,” remarked Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club President, John Berner. “We are delighted that Staples joined with us to help the work of the Oak Orchard Boys and Girls Club which ultimately helps the children of our community work through this difficult time.”
