Sun Lakes Rotary Club provides support to food bank

Gary Whiting, Sun Lakes Rotarian Each year

the 90+ members of the

Sun Lakes Rotary Club support the Rotary International Foundation and its major PolioPlus project, Gift of Life-Arizona for children suffering with congenital heart defects and several local charities in the Sun Lakes/Chandler area, and this Rotary year will be the same. As such, one local charity that came to club president Bonnie Whiting’s immediate attention for support is the Matthew’s Crossing Food Bank located in Chandler. Because of the slow economy and high unemployment in the East Valley there is an overwhelming need to help keep family hunger at bay. The Matthew’s Crossing Food Bank wages a daily fi ght against hunger by providing food and basic necessities to those in need. As explained by Executive Director

Aimee Runyon, there is presently more demand than supply, and help is needed. They are presently providing food to over 500 needy families per month and need a constant supply of donated food as the demand is growing. Additionally they need more refrigeration and storage for fresh food such as meat, poultry, vegetables and fruit. With these needs in mind, the Sun

Lakes Rotary Club used a local Rotary District Simplifi ed Grant of $1,500 to purchase a new refrigeration unit, which is now installed and in use. Additionally at each weekly Rotary meeting there is a guest speaker to address the club members on a variety of subjects. In recognition of their time and effort, the Rotary club is donating a total of $1,200 in their names to the Matthew’s Crossing Food Bank to help provide further assistance. The Sun Lakes Rotary Club is urging all

who read this article to consider joining forces with the Sun Lakes Rotary Club by providing a donation of a few items of food or a cash donation. If you have some

manpower to help out. Matthew’s Crossing Food Bank is located at 650 North Arizona Ave., Chandler 85225 and can be reached by phone at 480-766-2625 or their website: for more information. The Sun Lakes Rotary Club is proud of its

history in helping and providing assistance in both the local and international communities with monetary donations and personal hands-on involvement. Additionally, we are always looking for new men/women members and former Rotarians that have the time to spare and want to help by giving back through a united effort that Rotary can provide.
