Help is needed now more than ever! As the pandemic drags on, more families face lost jobs, reduced hours, and health problems. Hunger relief organizations are strapped trying to serve greater numbers of people while they face tighter budgets, fewer volunteers, and stricter safe-operating requirements.

To help, Rotary Club of the Upper Main Line is collecting grocery gift cards. We work in close partnership with reputable local food pantries and shelters, to ensure that these grocery gift card get to community members who are in true need, while minimizing physical contact that could spread COVID-19.

Challenge Grants: Our Rotary Club gave an initial $1400 Challenge Grant matching every donation dollar-for-dollar. Our first goal was met thanks to many generous supporters. Because people are still out of work and the needs have only gotten greater, we’ve issued a second Challenge Grant of $1500 which is now in progress.


You can make a difference for struggling families by donating online, or by sending gift cards.
