Many thanks to the Area 12 Rotary Clubs for obtaining a Rotary District 6970 grant for us to receive a new van, provided by Nissan of St. Augustine. The Area 12 Clubs include the Rotary Club of St. Augustine, St. Augustine Sunrise Rotary, the Rotary Club of St. Augustine Beach, Hastings Rotary and the Rotary Club of St. Augustine Sunset.
With their support, Betty Griffin Center will now have a great vehicle to use of mobile advocacy outreach – and to help shuttle our shelter residents, when needed. We took delivery of the van on March 7.
