Rotary Club of Hagerstown Sunrise Foundation Inc. distributed its Capital Improvement Funding grants to local nonprofits on Feb. 15. 

Foundation Chairman David Abeles said sharing with the local community is one of the club’s highlights of the year. 

“The Hagerstown Sunrise Rotary Grant Awards program is the culmination of our club members’ hard work during our annual auction,” Abeles said. 

“It is a wonderful day for our members to hear from the various nonprofits as to how they will utilize the awards to fulfill their respective missions and help our community. We gave close to $16,000 this year and in excess of $60,000 since the club’s foundation began the program.”
