When local non-profits in McKinney described mounting needs at a time when their scheduled fund-raising activities were cancelled due to the coronavirus quarantine, McKinney Sunset, a satellite of McKinney Sunrise Rotary Club, stepped up. Using funds generated by the flag-lease program where the Satellite Club maintained several routes, each of five local non-profits were awarded $500 to apply to those needs.
Included in this distribution were Hugs Cafe, Ruth Thompson, Exec., Collin County History Museum, Mary Carole Strother, Exec., Shiloh Place, Dr. Eppy Thern, Exec., Warriors Keep, John Cody Hardin, Exec., and Meals on Wheels of Collin County, Zella Tyson, Exec.
Sunset Satellite has invited all five to a club meeting on May 7 at 5:30 PM to hear how each is doing in these challenging times. The meeting may be in person or virtual.
