The Valeo Behavioral Health Foundation Board honored the Topeka South Rotary Club with the 2020 Mental Health Warrior Award. This award is given to a business, corporation or organization that demonstrates excellence in philanthropy surrounding mental health in Shawnee County. Topeka South Rotary was recognized for a Rotary Disaster Grant that provided personal protective equipment, such as sanitizer, face masks, and gloves, basic nonperishable food items, and a $50 Walmart gift card to consumers of Valeo mental health services. Topeka South provided 120 gift boxes to this underserved population that has been severely impacted by COVID-19. They also provided PPE to front-line health care workers at Valeo, Breakthrough House, Inc, Sunflower Connections, and Family Service and Guidance Center.
