The Rotary Club of Chapin Sunrise participated with other charitable organizations to donate and prepare donations of boxes of food for local students over the winter break from school. The families receiving the donations have students identified by the school district as being in need of food assistance on a weekly basis during the school year; so breaks from school – where school breakfast and lunch are not provided – can be particularly difficult for these families. The Club accepted the challenge of providing boxes of food for 10 families, and with overwhelming generosity from the members – raised enough donations to feed 20 families! The overall program in the school district set a goal of feeding 251 families and the Chapin Rotary Club was glad to be a part of this great community effort.
