To better meet the needs of this area of focus, Rotary Richmond is partnering with groups such as the Boys & Girls Club to serve the children of Richmond more frequently than ever before.

“Rotary Richmond thanks Boys & Girls Club Director Brandon Mouton and Swinging Door BBQ Restaurant owner Steve Onstad for their support in this effort,” said Michelle Moore, spokesperson for Rotary Richmond. “It is a good day in Richmond when the children are well fed.”

Rotary Richmond, chartered in 1936, is a member of Rotary International, an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service and help to build goodwill and peace in the world.
