During the last week of February and the first week of March, members of the Rotary Club of the Brookfields travelled to seven communities in our area, delivering COVID-19-related personal protective equipment and touchless thermometers.

Working together with our non-profit partner, Angel’s Answer Inc., we delivered this equipment to the town public safety departments and schools in the four Brookfields, Spencer, Ware, and Warren.  In addition to the Warren Housing Authority and Overlook VNA, other area housing authorities have previously received similar assistance. Our club is happy to continue supporting our courageous frontline workers.   

Our special thanks go out to Linda and Dana Lloyd of Angel’s Answer for their generosity, and to our club president Lynn Duffy-O’Shea, and to club members Terry McCarthy and Erica Jones for taking the time to visit these locations. We also are grateful to all of other club members and to our generous neighbors. Without their support, these contributions could not have been possible.
