Flagler Beach Rotary Club Donates $6,250 to Open Door Re-Entry and Recovery Ministries
By: Rotary Club of Flagler Beach
"The money will go to pay for a roof at the new Women's Recovery Center that is set to open in Bunnell later this spring," said Sean Palmer, Flagler Beach Rotary Club President.
The donation is a result of a grant written by the Rotary Club of Flagler Beach. The recovery center for women is expected to serve at least 12 women every year, with a possible impact on more than 300 women over the 25-year life of the roof, not including the many family members and children touched by the women's path to recovery.
