Botetourt County Rotary Club Donates $4,000 to Local Food Banks



The Botetourt County Rotary Club teamed up with The Bank of Fincastle to co-sponsor The Bank of  Fincastle Virtual 5K Run / Walk this fall.  As part of the virtual 5K, each participant was provided with a packet of information and goodies including an official custom 5K Run / Walk t-shirt.  Club members sold sponsorship spots on the back of the t-shirt to local businesses and individuals, a first in the history of the 34 year-old event.  With a lot of hard work, the club was successful in raising funds to support our local community. 
 
On November 18th, two checks were presented to local area food banks, Feeding Southwest Virginia and the Botetourt Food Pantry.  Each organization received $1,750.  Another $500 will be presented to Solomon’s Mission in Buchanan, Virginia in the coming days.
 
The Botetourt County Rotary Club sincerely appreciates The Bank of Fincastle for providing us with the opportunity to co-sponsor this year’s virtual 5K.
