Once again, the Rotary Club of Wolfeboro is sponsoring the Holiday Food Basket fundraiser from Tuesday, December 5, through Saturday, December 9. It is to benefit the L.I.F.E. Ministries Food Pantry.
Our goal is to raise $45,000 from donations, but given the community’s donations in the past, we hope to exceed this amount. Please drop non-perishable food items and cash donations at Spencer-Hughes Real Estate Office, 22 S. Main Street, Wolfeboro and listen in to WASR AM Radio 1420 between 8 AM to 1 PM each day for updates on the drive!
Monetary donations are greatly appreciated to purchase food that we obtain at 18 cents on the pound at the NH Food Bank in Manchester. Contributions may be made by sending your donations in the enclosed envelope. The Holiday Basket is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the L.I.F.E Ministries food pantry. The food pantry currently has qualified 720 families for a total of 1791 people.
Every dollar that you donate to the Food Pantry buys 2 meals for a person in need. We are blessed to have very low overhead costs, just our portion of the utilities that we use, plus some insurance and modest office supply costs. This ensures that the money donated does in fact go to the purchase of food.
Thank you for helping to support our neighbors! WASR, Rotary Volunteers, and L.I.F.E. Ministries personalities are broadcasting live on-air each day to receive your donations. Listen for lively and fun conversations and interviews with local personalities as we seek to help those in need.
