My Rotary is working with Purple Heart Homes of North Carolina to build a home for wounded Marine Cpl Manny Jimenez in the town of Glastonbury, CT. The Rotary is also a supporter of the Run for the Fallen CT event which is scheduled for July 28, 2012. My idea is to combine these two worthy causes.
On behalf of the Rotary Club of Glastonbury, I am training to complete a 10 mile run at the Run for the Fallen CT event. All donations received will be sent to Purple Heart Homes to help them continue their mission of providing accessible housing solutions to wounded veterans around the country.
To see the progress on Manny's home, please stop on Facebook and look at the photo albums. They form a chronological narrative that starts with the partnership of The Rotary Club of Glastonbury and Purple Heart Homes and continues with the support of local citizens, small business and tradesman. Add to that some folks from H.E.A.R.T. 9-11 and you've really got something.
