Hands-on Service

Springfield Southeast Rotarians served supper at The Fairbanks on April 21, 2022. The Drew Lewis Foundation at The Fairbanks strives to help people in Northwest Springfield improve their lives by offering classes on money management, parenting, resume writing, and other life skills. The once-a-week Thursday suppers resumed in March after being canceled during the pandemic. Springfield Southeast Rotary serves the suppers on the third Thursday of each month.
