'Rotary Rice Rally' a joint effort
The "Rotary Rice Rally" project recently united the 48 Rotary Clubs of Hawaii District 5000 with a common goal of feeding the hungry in Hawaii.
The focus of the collection statewide was rice, as rice is one of the staples of local meals. Collections of rice, other food and funds were held at various businesses across the state. More than 16,000 pounds of food and $6,500 in funds were collected.
A fundraising effort took place at each Maui Rotary Club during January. Each of the nine Maui clubs designated a meeting date where "Happy Dollars" were collected for the Maui Food Bank. A total of $1,330 was collected and presented to Keith Wright, director of operations, by representatives of the nine Maui Rotary Clubs.
This "Rotary Rice Rally" is one of the many community service projects sponsored by the Rotary Clubs on Maui. For more information about the clubs and their activities call Maui Assistant District Govs. Joanne Laird at 757-0981 or Hugh Chare at 572-3020.
