Do you have food on your table? Well some of your/our neighbors don't.
We need your help to give them nourishment!
Help feed Staten Islanders, be part of the solution.
Rotary’s motto is SERVICE ABOVE SELF. These are trying times, but we do not need to wait for times to get better to provide assistance.
Since its founding in 1955, the South Shore Rotary has donated over $3,000,000 to local and international charities. As a limited sampling, we have helped to feed the hungry, provided medical care for the sick, clothed the destitute, cared for our Vets and helped educate our young. Additionally we have provided hands on services and material assistance to numerous causes.
Covid – 19 has radically affected us. We have not been able to hold fundraisers. We have not even been able to collect our regular dues. Both of which drive/fuel our giving.
Yes, we must SELF quarantine. That being said, we don’t have to become completely isolated or self-serving. We cannot. We must not. We have thousands of Staten Islanders suffering already from FOOD SCARCITY. Like it or not, these thousands depend on food pantries and food service donations.
South Shore Rotary (SSR) and all Rotarians commit (as members) to live by the motto Service Above Self. For the purposes of this Go Fund Me campaign, the focus is earmarked exclusively for food for Staten Islanders.
Right now, we cannot organize luncheons, dinners, cocktail parties, etc. In fact, all these avenues are shuttered indefinitely. But there is a direct, absolutely necessary and doable action we can take. Direct donation of money can be done from your keyboards. Money collected on this Go Fund Me site, and on our Website at https://southshorerotary.comwill go directly to the food pantries in distress, to seniors desperate for help and for kids now shut out of school cafeterias (especially on weekends). ALL MONIES WILL BE DIRECTED TO FOOD PURCHASE; COORDINATION WILL BE ORCHESTRATED BY SSR MEMBERS.
We can’t hug or even shake hands right now, but we can still SHARE and meet our Service Above Self pledge but only with your help. Please share this Go Fund Me site with all your social media and Facebook friends. Let’s get an invisible/virtual lifeline going which connects us directly to those in need through monetary donations for FOOD.
No amount is too small. We're grate full for every penny !!!!!!!!!!!
