Rotarians, along with Councilmember Chris Duncan, spent the afternoon with the volunteers, lending a helping hand with the food giveaway event at Jamboree’s Mendocino at Talega apartment complex.

Second Harvest Food Bank and Amazon Fresh, through a partnership with Family Assistance Ministries, donate the food for the weekly event, Rotarian Tyler Boden explained.

The Club’s $2,500 contribution to COA, he said, kicked off the Thrive Alive program, which is meant to help transitional-aged youth gain skills and life experiences while promoting drug and alcohol awareness and prevention.
