In an effort to address the issue of hungry families, former Rotary International Vice President, Anne Matthews, started a program called “Rotary Has HEART” challenging Rotarians to use Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to engage their communities and help feed the hungry, especially the children. Statistics show that 28% of children in South Carolina face hunger and food anxiety issues on a daily basis.  The goal of the Cayce-West Columbia Rotary was to “Fill the Bin” with unperishable food items (which they did) for the Food Pantry at the Brookland Baptist Church (where the club meets each Tuesday). The club also made a financial donation to the Food Pantry at Christian Life Assembly; these two diverse locations, (approved Harvest Hope food banks), supply food to those in need in surrounding areas and beyond. NO child should ever have an empty belly and suffer from hunger in our communities. We are our brother’s keeper.  Rotary has Heart!
