2020 COVID-19 Support For Our Community
The Elm City Rotary Club hosts annual public events to raise funds and nonperishable items for children who are food insecure and living in The Monadnock Region, New Hampshire. The culminating event - Thanksgiving in July - seeks to engage local residents to partake in an exciting fundraising event to celebrate the unique, “all hands on deck” service opportunity that will make a huge impact in the lives of local children and families
In February 2016, Keene Elm City Rotary founded MUCH (Monadnock Understands Childhood Hunger) an advisory think tank of rotarians, non-profit and advocacy professionals in the field of childhood hunger. From MUCH work has come the critical knowledge that summer is a time of great need for hungry children. Without the benefit of school and after school programs and with rural households living in poverty, children's access to healthy foods more than doubles during the summer months.
In 2020, Thanksgiving in July has accelerated our timeline, and moved to a totally virtual event to support our community during the COVID-19 Pandemic
All donations will go to The Community Kitchen
