Working Together to Reduce Hardship

It was a second reunion as Sturbridge Rotary welcomed back two guests, Lisa Meunier, Burgess School nurse, and Bill Pioppi, representing the St. John Paul II Food Pantry.  Lisa and Bill were introduced last year at a Rotary meeting and have been working together ever since in Lisa’s caring and humanitarian endeavors to help students and families in need in the Sturbridge area.  Rotary presented a check to Lisa to help her work in providing clothing, household needs, and even housing for families going through difficult times.  The money will also help Lisa provide toys at Christmas for the children in need.  Bill was also given a check to provide 35 holiday meals to the families identified by Lisa.  Working together to help students and families going through hardship by providing the proper resources is a win for everyone.
