Rotary Backs Efforts of Food Pantry

Judge Stephen P.B. Minor, Coudersport Rotary member, presented Jane Crossly, Director of the God’s Food Pantry, with a $300.00 cash donation on behalf of the Coudersport Rotary Club, earlier this month, as part of the Club’s Holiday Gift Project.

The food pantry was created in 1998 to serve those going without the vital necessity of food and presently serves about 160 families (400-500 people) per month.

“Our members recognize that Rotary cannot fulfill every humanitarian need by itself and therefore must support, and work cooperatively with, other organizations in the area that are committed to addressing the basic needs of our residents such as our local food pantries”, stated Minor.

The Rotary Club’s 2010 Holiday Gift Project also included donations to the Coudersport Library, the Christmas House, and Meals-on-Wheels.  Other than cash donations, the Club’s members also donate their time to various organizations such as the ringing of the bells for the Salvation Army.

Anyone interested in making a direct donation to the Food Pantry should contact Jane Crossly, Director, at (814) 274-8661.  Anyone interested in performing community service or wanting to make a donation to the various non-profit organizations should contact Karen at the Coudersport Rotary Club at (814) 203-3933.
