The Rotary Club of Lake Placid, NY along with our partners are excited to share a much-needed community service opportunity.   As you know, COVID-19 has created difficult economic circumstances for many in our area.  The Lake Placid Ecumenical Food Pantry has been the main food source for many families in the area during the pandemic.
The Food Drives began in May 2020.  Thanks to your generosity the drives have collected enough food and monetary donations for 8,698 meals.  That’s enough to feed a family of four, three meals a day for  725 days!  Wow! 
The needs of our community continue to grow given the economic and public health situations.  You've seen the appeals for support from many organizations as COVID-19 continues to impact lives. More families are coming to the Lake Placid Ecumenical Food Pantry and relying on the Pantry to support their nutrition needs.   
Please come join us to help meet the community's nutrition needs as the temperatures continue to fall.  Zonta is our special partner for the February food drive and is looking forward to receiving your generous donations.

By working together, we can achieve our goal to address the challenge of hunger in our community.

We look forward to continuing to supporting the needs of our community with your help.  We thank you for your generosity.
