Ottumwa Rotary Club Awards Two Grants

By Ellis Codjoe, August 20, 2019

The Rotary Club of Ottumwa recently awarded a pair of grants to two community organizations.

Whatsoever You Do is currently transforming the old East End Presbyterian Church into a homeless shelter for women and children. The non-profit received $5,000 from the Rotary Club that will be used to rehabilitate the bathrooms in the building.

American Gothic of Performing Arts recently accepted the donation of the former B’Nai Jacob Synagogue and plan to utilize the structure for performances and a community event space. The Rotary Club granted them $5,000 to stabilize the electrical system of their newly acquired building.

Both grants came from the proceeds from the Rotary Club’s 2018 Chicken BBQ dinner. This year’s fundraising dinner will be held at the Bridge View Center on Tuesday, October 1.
