Connecting People Who Care with Causes that Matter

Liberty, New York, Rotary Club Foundation Fund

OPERATION FEED PHASE 2 is a partnership of the Liberty NY Rotary ClubRotary Club of Monticello NYTown of Fallsburg Lions Club, Tri-Valley Lions Club, Livingston Manor Rotary Club,  Boys and Girls Club of Sullivan County, Liberty, Monticello, Fallsburg, Livingston Manor & Tri-Valley School Districts, The Community Foundation of Orange & Sullivan and non-profit A Single Bite.

The nonprofit, A Single Bite and Foster Supply Hospitality are supporting hungry families in every school district in Sullivan County, New York.  A Single Bite collaborates with school administrators, community leaders, and dedicated volunteers to reach deep into Sullivan County to help those experiencing severe hardship.  Healthy, prepared meals are delivered to every school district to low-income families, those adversely affected by the pandemic and still more who do not have the means to reliably access healthy food.

Twice a week with Operation Feed Phase 2 volunteers are delivering food to 660 people including more than 390 children who are experiencing food insecurity or at serious risk for real hunger.  Qualified personnel from each school district and staff from the Boys and Girls Club identify families in need of assistance. At a cost of $5 per meal, we are committed to continuing to feed our neighbors at least through the summer of 2020.

 

Since mid-May, Operation Feed has distributed over 9000 meals to 127 families. “Existing poverty and hunger has only been intensified by this unprecedented Covid-19 Pandemic and we are proud to participate with so many great local organizations to help provide the families in need with nutritious meals twice a week,” says Phase 2 coordinator Gary Silver. “A Single Bite produces the healthy meals and our organizations and volunteers distribute them.”

Donations are needed to continue this effort. Because Foster Supply Hospitality contributes all associated labor and overhead costs, and Operation Feed volunteers donate all of their time and efforts, one hundred percent of all contributions support the purchase of food and packaging for family meals.

PUERTO RICO (PR) DISASTER RELIEF

On January 7 there was an earthquake, magnitude 6.4 followed by another 6.0 tremor, which impacted the southwest coast of Puerto Rico. As a result, a number of houses collapsed and buildings and other structures have been structurally compromised. Currently there are 30-40 seismic activities every day in the southwest coast of the island. ranging from 2.4 – 5.4 in intensity.  Many people are living in fear as the ground shakes daily.  Some are afraid to sleep in their homes fearing that the next earthquake could be catastrophic. The situation is causing economic, social and emotional issues    for a number of the people in those communities.

After Hurricane Maria, the Liberty, NY Rotary Club developed a network of Rotarians from Puerto Rico, Massachusetts and New York to provide assistance to the Moca, Puerto Rico, area which was devastated by the hurricane, and together we are working with the leadership Puerto Rico’s District 7000 to respond to this latest crisis.

Through the Liberty NY Rotary Club Foundation Fund at CFOS, donations are being  securely collected and distributed directly to assist the people of Puerto Rico during this frightening time.  Please consider donating to our fellow citizens, brothers and sisters – no donation is too large or too small – through one of the options below.
