The Rotary Club of North Manchester purchased the supplies to build a drop-off box for the Thrift Shop. Greg Slater, who built the drop-off box, did excellent work and came in under budget! Our Club applied for and received a Rotary Foundation grant to purchase the supplies. Folks had been leaving donated items outside the Thrift Shop. Unfortunately, the elements, such as rain and snow, often damaged the items and they had to be thrown away. That will no longer be a problem. Thanks, Greg!
