GREENFIELD — Greenfield’s two Rotary Clubs have raised a pot of cash they want distribute to local humanitarian and charitable organizations’ operating accounts this summer.
Rotary Club of Greenfield and Rotary Club of Greenfield Sunrise brought in just under $26,000 in net proceeds from their second annual Steak’n, Bake’n raffle and dinner in October, and now the clubs are encouraging Hancock County for-profit and non-profit groups to submit applications for grants that will range from $1,000 to $4,000 per organization for their operational expenses, said event co-chair Dave Anders.
In their first outing, the clubs raised some $18,000 for local service organizations. With a matching grant from Hancock County Community Foundation, the effort helped 14 groups in Hancock County with their operating expenses for the year.
Applications are now available at the club’s website and must be submitted by March 15, Anders said.
