SIGN UP TO HELP!       https://forms.gle/uAX1uDJLfFiGP99LA
 
 
The Rotary Club of Lake Placid, NY along with our partners are excited to continue a much-needed community service opportunity.   Many in the community helped to support the Lake Placid Ecumenical Ministries Food Pantry throughout COVID-19.  Recently the number of folks using the food pantry has increased, and some foods are no longer available from the regional food bank.
 
The Lake Placid Rotary Club, along with its food drive partners, plans to host food drives January through June 2022.  They will take place on a Saturday between 9:00am – 12:00am at the St. Agnes Church parking lot.

  • March 12 –     St. Patrick’s Day  
Your generosity during COVID-19 was instrumental in supporting families that were in need.  Since May 2020, the community has given food and monetary donations for roughly ~17,450 meals.  That’s enough to feed a family of four, three meals a day for 4 years! 
 
Also, many saw much higher living costs in 2021 – for example gas, food, rent, clothing – that can cause families to make difficult decisions about how to use their incomes.   The volume of families using the food pantry to help augment or to provide most of their food remains very high. So far in 2022, rising inflation has now become another factor impacting how families allocate available funds.  The volume of families using the food pantry to help augment or to provide most of their food remains very high.
 
Please come join us on these Saturdays and help keep the food pantry’s shelves stocked for families.  Any level of support would be greatly appreciated
 
By working together, we can achieve our goal to address the challenge of hunger in our community. We thank you for your generosity.
