Several area families are being provided with food baskets as a part of “Thanksgiving in July”, a project sponsored by the Rotary Club of Leesburg in partnership with the Leesburg Police Department.
Six families were identified through contacts within the schools to receive these baskets. Along with the baskets of food, each family will receive a gift card to an area grocery store.
The baskets were delivered to the Leesburg Police Department June 30 by Rotary Club members Ron Rogos and Jim Gable.
“The partnership with the Rotary Club of Leesburg to provide these food baskets is a great example of being able to give back to the community and provide less fortunate families a healthy meal,” Interim Chief of Police Vanessa Grigsby stated. “We value our partnerships with local organizations and look forward to continuing to look at creative ways where we can assist others in our community.”
