(Millsboro) (April 30, 2021) — Despite high winds that nearly collapsed the check sign, Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club President, Lucille Cavan, presented CJ Pitts of Oak Orchard Boys and Girls Club with a check for $1,500 that the organization can use for upcoming pizza / ice-cream parties. The parties will be held as an incentive reward to students who accomplish stated goals. Such goals would be for the completion of educational components including homework, zooms and remote work as well as showing positive behavior. The money will also be used for winners of the Club’s Team Art contest held throughout the summer. The hope is that the donation will cover about 12 months of parties and awards.
“Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club has been a major contributor to programs here for the boys and girls and we are very grateful for their support,” remarked Erica Kennedy, Executive Director, Oak Orchard Boys and Girls Club.
Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club has long supported the Oak Orchard Boys and Girls Club with holding a Pitch, Hit and Run contest in association with the MLB; and providing monthly birthday bashes with cupcakes and fruit juice for all, and $25 gift cards and a balloon for those celebrating a birthday that month.
“Helping the children in Long Neck is one of our stated missions,” notes Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club President, Lucille Cavan. “It has been particularly difficult for many of the area children to maintain their school work during this pandemic, so we are delighted to be able to support the Oak Orchard Boys and Girls Club in this motivational endeavor.”
