Alliance Rotary Club supports COVID-19 relief efforts
Alliance Rotary Club distributed the grant award to Community Table and purchased gift cards from Newberry’s Common Ground and Dairy Queen to gift to all employees of Box Butte General Hospital.
Supporting small businesses who were experiencing a reduction in hours, customers, and income, as well as frontline healthcare workers, was another priority for the Club. To maximize the $1,000 grant, the Club purchased gift cards from Newberry’s Common Ground and Dairy Queen to donate to Box Butte General Hospital, a critical access hospital responsible for serving a large rural area. The donation of gift cards to BBGH helped the Club show gratitude for each of the 275 frontline healthcare professionals.
Rotary District 5630 made $25,150 available to clubs submitting a grant request project. The Rotary Foundation Disaster Aid grant was to be used throughout (central and Western) Nebraska in response to COVID-19 and the pandemic’s impact on its communities.
