Bristol Rotary Club signed on for the Thanksgiving Dinner Drive through the Liberty Bank Foundation. That means we tried to raise money to ensure that everyone in the community would have a bountiful Thanksgiving. The bank foundation matched our collection by 25 percent. The club teamed up with Meals for the Needy, a food pantry and soup kitchen serving Bristol for more than 30 years. Working together paid off, as the club was able to turn over a check for $13,223 to Meals for the Needy on Tuesday. In all, 29 Rotary clubs took part in the bank's Thanksgiving fundraiser and the Bristol club placed fifth in total raised. We're pleased and so is the food pantry, because the need is definitely there.
