Helping Feed the Hungry
Rotary Fundraiser a Success
While most of us are able to eat on a regular basis, there are many in our community that go hungry and the food bank keeps them from starving. On May 14 the five Rotary clubs of South Surrey/White Rock (The Rotary Clubs of Peace Arch, Peninsula, Semiahmoo, South Surrey and White Rock) held the third annual fundraising breakfast at First United Church. Over $5000 was raised to help Sources Food Bank help those in need. Sources’ buying power will allow them to purchase $15000 worth of food and goods for those in need.
Over 200 community members joined us for breakfast and therefore “ate AND fed the hungry.” For $15 they enjoyed a breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, coffee, tea, and juice cooked and served by Rotarians. Many in attendance brought donations of non-perishable food and made financial donations.
A very special thank you goes our supporters: First United Church and Choices Markets, as well as, Save-On-Foods, Safeway, Thriftys, and Buy-Low Foods.
The Peninsula Club  staffed the kitchen cooking and cleaning   - What a TEAM!
