SPRINGFIELD, NJ – Mel Kevoe, President – Rotary Club of Springfield, sent this letter to “Friends of Rotary”.

Dear Friends of Rotary,

As the President of the Rotary Club of Springfield, I would like to invite you to participate in the international hunger relief program, Rise Against Hunger’s meal packaging event to be held on December 14, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. at Springfield Community Center, 100 South Springfield Ave. Springfield.

Sign Up for E-News

This is a very worthwhile event in which giving a monetary donation or working hands on the day of the event is just as important.  More than 40 percent of Rise Against Hunger’s meals are distributed to school feeding programs around the world.  Those meals encourage school attendance and help put these children and their families on a path out of poverty.

My wife, Sherry, and I have participated in packaging meals several times and come away with a very heart warming feeling of doing something positive for children and their families who are less fortunate than us.  For many children, the meals provided are the only meals they get for the day, so they truly rely on this program.

The Rotary Club of Springfield has a goal of raising $6,000 while will serve to package 20,000 meals with Rise Against Hunger, but WE NEED YOUR HELP!  Please consider contributing to our event or participating on that day.  You will be a part of something very BIG which will positively impact so many children who benefit from these nutritious meals.

Please consider a donation by sending a check payable to the Springfield Rotary Founation 501-C3 to:  Springfield Rotary, P.O. Box 1333, Springfield, NJ 07081.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME and on behalf of Springfield Rotary, I hope we can count on you to Make a Difference!  Please contact me with any questions at (973) 769-9649.

Yours in Rotary,

Melvin I. Kevoe
