The Bailey’s Crossroads Rotary Club distributed checks to several local charities at the group’s June 13 breakfast meeting.

Organizations receiving funds include Helping Hands, a program of the Bailey’s Elementary School PTA;  Annandale Christian Community for Action; the Mason Police District’s Citizens Advisory Committee; Homestretch; and youth football, reports Rotary member Dave Borowski.

Those are just a few of the groups the Bailey’s Crossroads Rotary Club has supported over the years. Other groups the club has contributed to include the Bailey’s Crossroads Volunteer Fire Department, Langley Residential Support Services, the Special Olympics, and the Wounded Warriors Project. During 2013-14, the club donated nearly $18,000 to charities, as well as additional support to local schools and international projects.

The Rotary Club has raised funds to support charities by raffling off a vintage car annually for the past 29 years. This year’s raffle, for a 1966 Ford Mustang convertible, will take place Sept. 14 at Occoquan Regional Park. More information on purchasing raffle tickets is available online.

The Bailey’s Crossroads Rotary Club meets Friday mornings at 7:30 at Goodwin House 3440 S. Jefferson St. in Bailey’s Crossroads.
