The Grille at Flower Hill to Host Fundraiser for RTMC
The Grille at Flower Hill, a local restaurant and Gaithersburg favorite, will be sponsoring a fundraiser this Thursday evening, April 7, starting at 6 PM to support the service project being hosted later this month by Rebuilding Together Montgomery County’s AmeriCorps service members. The Grille will generously donate 10% of all dinner sales between 6 PM and 9 PM to RTMC to help pay for the cost of the materials RTMC’s service members will need to repair a local nonprofit facility.
To successfully complete their service term, AmeriCorps service members are required to plan, develop, and execute a community service project that helps address a social problem facing the community. This year, RTMC’s service members Claire Durst and Lianna Harbeson will be leading a group of volunteers from Our Lady of Good Counsel High School in repairing a facility operated by Lead4Life, a local nonprofit dedicated to reducing the number of youth entering the juvenile justice system, the number of out-of-home placements, and the youth recidivism rate. This project will not only create a more vibrant and welcoming space for Lead4Life’s clients, it will allow Lead4Life to focus its resources on what it does best, serving at-risk youth throughout Montgomery County.
“The work done by RTMC and its AmeriCorps service members is critical to improving the lives of some of our most vulnerable neighbors here in Montgomery County,” said Aaron Gonzales, Director of Development at Rebuilding Together Montgomery County. “This work is only possible through the help and support of civic-minded businesses like The Grille. Bill Moore and his team at The Grille never cease to amaze us with their dedication to giving back to the communities in which they live and work, and we can’t thank them enough for the support they are providing to our AmeriCorps service members.”
If you would like to help support this wonderful project, please join us at The Grille, located at 18257 Flower Hill Way, Gaithersburg, MD 20879, this Thursday anytime between 6 PM and 9 PM. You will be providing much needed support to a wonderful cause and enjoying some of the best food in town in the process.
