A message from our District Governor Rich Burns - What Giving is all about...
Giving is making a commitment. To have 18 individual Rotary clubs in District 5610 stepping up to support the initiation of our “Food 4 the Holidays” program speaks volumes about our commitment. Identified in 2016 as a friendly competition between clubs, to support a common community needs project, and having so many Clubs participate demonstrates Rotary’s strength in the places we live.
Clubs from locations with under 1000 residence to those in major metropolitan areas all identified unique ways to leverage Rotary’s support to eliminate food insecurities. There were bake sales, can drives, backpacks for kids, food for homeless veterans, community delivery teams, food gift baskets, food insecurity coupons, the ideas were original and endless. In all, we will be providing over $5800 and supporting all of the 18 Clubs who participated in their way to provide “Food 4 the Holidays.” I want to thank each and every Club involved for their commitment and outstanding job well done to help make the Holiday season a blessing for everyone.

Rich Burns, District Governor 5610
