Cornerstone Cares – Congressman's Visit

Go Rockville RAMS! Is that cool or what?

The Rockville Lacrosse Team recently did more than compete on the field. They helped to fight hunger in their community!

T-shirts were sold by the team for $10 each and all profits went to The Cornerstone Foundation. Novel Tees graciously created the design and provided the shirts at cost. Each T-shirt sold provided $6.25 to Cornerstone.

The main thrust of the campaign was within the Rockville High School community.

The Cornerstone Foundation is very interwoven with our local community, and we showcase who we are at various local events such as National Night Out and JesusFest. We recently enjoyed a visit to the Cornerstone Community Center by U.S. Congressman Joe Courtney and Foodshare. We also hold an annual "SoupFest" fundraiser and 5K walk/run fundraising events.

Speaking of community, we'd like to thank Pro-Window Cleaning in Manchester for washing the windows at the Soup Kitchen, Youth Center, and Shelter. They did an excellent job, working very hard at no cost to The Cornerstone Foundation. The owner is Gary Danforth, and the crew members were Julian Lush, Mike McGuire, and Chris Godfrey. The crew members volunteered their time. Pro-Window may be contacted at ProWindows@cox.net .
