Our Rotarians co-ordinate a fall food drive to help stock our local food bank. The drive takes place leading up to the Thanksgiving weekend. Virtually every Rotary member, many EarlyAct members and many Friends of Rotary volunteer to pick up donations, sort the food by category and deliver the cases of food to the food bank. We collect in excess of 25,000 pounds of food each year and approximately $25,000 in cash. Our food bank is entirely volunteer run and serves over 1400 individuals of which 40% are children.
