RCGLB November Food Drive Fundraiser
According to an October article by NJ Spotlight News "Pandmic in NJ forces 1.2 Million to become "food insecure", report says the number surges by 56% this year, higher than national rate due to hard-hit hospitality and leisure industries.  For children, the projected increase is even bigger, at 75%, bringing the total to 365,000, the report said.  The new projected rate of food insecurity exceeds the 12.3% seen at the depth of the Great Recession of 2007-2009.

The Club did very well with our November fundraiser, raising $5,700.  We received $1,000 from Investors Bank, $2,500 from a Rotary District Grant, $1,000 donation from Sylvia Allen, and $1,200 from club members.  Thank you to all.  As a result, $950 each was donated in December to pantries at at Christ the King Parish, St. Michaels Church, The Lutheran Church, Reformation, Trinity AME Church and St. Lukes Church.

Our goal for December is to reach a minimum of $1,000 by the end of the month.  Investors Bank will be adding $1,000  to that amount.   The money raised will be distributed to local food pantries in a check so they can purchase supplies needed the most.
Please donate as much as you are able.  No one should go hungry in this country, especially children.  We need to continue helping our community.   There is light at the end of a long tunnel.
Credit cards are preferred, checks accepted.   Send checks to Long Branch Rotary Club, P.O. Box 3094, Long Branch, NJ 07740.  If you are making a donation of over $100 by credit card or have a problem using the website please call Ken Gittell at (732) 539-3077.
