The Rotary Club of Great Falls donated 40 'End of the Year' baskets to Cornerstones in Reston for its Out-of-School Youth Program for elementary and middle school students. The Cornerstone program is held in the Town of Herndon at the Neighborhood Resource Center, 1081 Elden Street.
"This is incredibly generous," said Meredith Hovan, vice president of resource development at Cornerstones. We can’t begin to thank you (Bob Dinkel) and the club enough.”
According to one of the Rotary volunteers for children, Steve Flannery, several entertainment and business organizations, including MicroSystems Automation Group, supported the effort. MSAG is a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business that was one of the corporate sponsors. "[They] helped make this possible by bringing together all of the great things for the kids," Flannery explained.
As Cornerstones transitions from its after-school care program at the Neighborhood Resource Center to its summer Excite program, Hovan said that the baskets would be used as rewards for the children, celebrating the end of the school year.
