Twenty-one members of Columbia’s Capital Rotary volunteered at Harvest Hope Food Bank to help pack over 150 boxes of groceries for distribution to the needy and elderly.  Their participation was part of Rotary District 7770’s call for community service projects fighting hunger in the first quarter of 2017.  Harvest Hope began in 1981 and since has expanded to feed the hungry across 20 counties in the Midlands, Pee Dee and Greater Greenville regions of South Carolina.  The club counts the food bank’s executive director, Denise Holland, in its membership ranks.

Each month, volunteers from the North Charleston Rotary Club assist the Lowcountry Food Bank. Through this community service project, club members help package the bulk food supplies for distribution to those in need.
We were excited to participate in the 2017 Rotary Has Heart program as we celebrated Valentine’s Day while helping the Food Bank’s effort to fight hunger in our community.
