Cornerstone Cares – Congressman's Visit
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.
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 .
