Addison Midday Rotary Club (AMRC) has pledged $15,000 for the new Metrocrest Services Headquarters.
 
METROCREST SERVICES is developing their new headquarters at 1835 Walnut Avenue. For this multi-million dollar project, Rotary Clubs in the area served by Metrocrest Services, have been approached by Metrocrest Services with a request to help with a financial donation. In return, a prominent part of the new building will bear the Rotary name. Each club can pledge what is reasonable for them, based on the financial situation and possibilities. To make it easier for the clubs, the pledge would be made over the course of 3 years.
 
For the Rotary Club of Addison Midday, has approved a pledge of $15,000 over the next 3 years ($5,000 yearly) .
 
The other Rotary Clubs – Farmers Branch, Carrollton-Farmers Branch, Coppell and Addison Morning – are working on a similar pledge. The Rotary Club of Coppell has already voted to pledge a $30,000 gift.
 
 
 
 
AMRC President Ben Wolber said "Lets Roll for Metrocrest - as a club we will donate 1% of the Metrocrest Services goal of 100,000 rolls of paper" (1,000 rolls).
 
 We exceeded our goal and donated 1,305 rolls.
 
 
Hats Off to AMRC!
