The Devon Rotary Club recently donated $1,525 to Beth El Center in Milford to support its food/meal program, which has seen a dramatic increase in demand (up over 45 percent from March of last year) due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The donation represented club funds and those from a Rotary District 7980 grant the club received. Devon Rotary also supports Beth El by providing about 70 lunches to clients once a month and paying for a complete cleaning of its kitchen once a year.
