Chester Rotary Helps Fight Hunger

Thursday, July 9, 2020 By: Francy Cross

 

 

 

 

 

With schools shut down, businesses closed, too many of our citizens out of work, and reduced food availability, hunger continues to stalk our region.

As People of Action, Rotarians took steps to stop hunger.

In response to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Rotary District 7450 Board of Directors authorized funding to provide each club in the District a grant opportunity to connect with like-minded community organizations to fight hunger. With Rotary District 7450’s support and a partnership with the NAACP of Chester and the Kiwanis Club of Chester, the Rotary Club of Chester was able to raise $1,500.00 for the Salvation Army-Chester Corps’ food bank.

Statement from Rotary International

Sunday, June 21, 2020
At Rotary, we have no tolerance for racism. Promoting respect, celebrating diversity, demanding ethical leadership, and working tirelessly to advance peace are central tenets of our work.

We have more work to do to create more just, open and welcoming communities for all people.

We know there are no easy fixes and that challenging conversations and work lie before all of us. Rotary’s strength has long been our ability and commitment to bringing people together. We will tap into that strength now as we stand with those who are working for peace and justice. 

Rotary will do our part to listen, learn and take action to ensure that we continue to contribute to making positive change.
