Members of the board and staff of Rural Human Services (RHS) wish to thank the Sunrise Rotary Club, which donated a 10-foot-by-10-foot storage unit, along with full installation services. The storage unit will be used by Harrington House, our community’s resource for victims of domestic violence and their children.

“Although Harrington House is large and accommodating for shelter residents, storage space is at a minimum,” according to Harrington House staff members. “This is an incredibly valuable and needed gift.”

In the last few years, Harrington House has seen an increased number of clients. As a result, demand for items essential to starting a new life for its clients have also grown and has begun to exceed the space that Harrington House has allocated for that purpose. Clients need basic items such as clothes, kitchenware and linens.

“This is a wonderful solution to our storage woes and RHS truly appreciates the thoughtfulness and generosity of the Sunrise Rotary Club,” said Teri McCune-Oostra, executive director of RHS.
