Granby Rotary donates $6,000 to Outbreak of Kindness

Granby Rotarians present a $6,000 donation to Outbreak of Kindness. Shown from left to right are Granby Rotarians Tim Schowalter and Sandra Moore; Sondra Tilsley, Outbreak of Kindness; and Paula Steinbacher, Church of the Eternal Hills.

The Rotary Club of Granby recently received $3,000 in matching funds from Rotary District 5450 to complement the club’s $3,000 donation. Together, that allowed the Rotary Club to give the Outbreak of Kindness a $6,000 grant.

The money will be used to alleviate food insecurity many county residents are experiencing due to the COVID pandemic and recent wildfires. Food boxes are delivered by Outbreak of Kindness volunteers twice monthly in Tabernash, Granby, Hot Sulphur Springs, Kremmling, and Grand Lake.

Because Rotary grants require hands-on participation from the sponsoring club members, Granby Rotarians will be volunteering with Outbreak of Kindness to shop for supplies, sort and package items and deliver food boxes.

The Outbreak of Kindness was brought together by community members at the beginning of the pandemic as a way to support Grand though this challenging year. For more information on the group, go to
