December Guest Speaker: Anne Marie Mann, Director of Emergency Outreach Services

In the spirit of the holiday, the Rootstown Area Chamber of Commerce made a donation and collected food items for The Amelia DiGirolamo Center of Hope as part of the chamber's December luncheon meeting on the NEOMED campus. Anne Marie Mann, director of emergency outreach services of Family and Community Services, talked to chamber members about the critical needs of families and individuals in the community who have limited incomes or no financial support.
