LAFAYETTE, Ind (WLFI)- The Lafayette Rotary Club donated $3,000 to local organizations Thursday morning.

Trinity Life Ministries received money for its 'trinity horizons' program, which helps individuals fight drug and alcohol addiction.

The Second Baptist Church's baby pantry also received a grant. The baby pantry program helps to provide baby supplies to local families who need it.

Also the Mary T. Klinker Veteran Resource Center was gifted a grant, which provides assistance to veterans. This grant is expected to go toward financial support of local veterans. 

Vince Guido, a member of the Gifts and Requests Committee at the Lafayette Daybreak Rotary said it's a great feeling to give back to the community.

"For a veteran who has had some hard times and gotten behind on their rent- to be able to help with that kind of a situation can make a huge difference in a life, which can then turn around and make a huge difference in a community," Guido said. 

Guido believes investing in local nonprofits is investing in our community.

"For some folks that are in a much more precarious position, to have that assistance can make the world of difference," Guido said.

All three nonprofits each received $1,000.
