Responding to the increased demand for food assistance, the Rotary Club of Schaumburg A.M. donated $2,000 to the Schaumburg Township Food Pantry to meet the immediate need for help.

This donation, in part, was made possible by a Rotary District 6440 Foundation matching grant.

 

Schaumburg A.M. Rotary Club President the Rev. Jerry Hays said, "As Rotarians, we are committed to service, especially in times such as we are experiencing now. It is a priority for us to assist others in need and supporting the food pantry fits that priority."

The Schaumburg Township Food Pantry is one of more than 700 partner agencies and programs that works in conjunction with the Greater Chicago Food Depository to distribute food to those in need in Cook County.

The Greater Chicago Food Depository is a member of Feeding America, a U.S.-based nonprofit organization consisting of a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks that feed more than 46 million people through food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other community-based agencies.

Rotarians roll up their sleeves, leverage their personal relationships with local partners and businesses and take action that improves the lives of others at both the local and international levels through our community, vocational, international, youth and club service committees.
