The New Paltz Rotary Club Foundation needs your help! Every Thursday year-round our club purchases, packs, and delivers bags full of nutritious food to children in our school district who experience food insufficiency. Last year, 44 children participated in our Backpack Program and received more than 15,000 pounds of food, which is equivalent to almost 9,000 meals. We also support local families in emergency situations as well as during the holiday season with additional food and gift cards.
Sadly, due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the need for assistance is even greater this year. At the same time, we have been forced to cancel three of our four fund raising events because of the pandemic. Our club remains determined to continue supporting our local children and their families and that is why we need your help now more than ever. We deeply appreciate any donation you can make, no matter how small—every dollar will directly assist the most vulnerable in our community. Please share this GoFundMe link with your friends so we can reach our $20,000 goal. Thank you!
