Club makes $8000 donation to Food Bank for Larimer County

 

The Breakfast Club donated $8000 to help fund the Children's Backpack food program through the Food Bank for Larimer County. Since the Club's charter in 1989, children at risk has been an extremely high priority for members. Helping to support and expand the Backpack Program was a natural project for the Club.

The Backpack Program provides nutritious food for children in need to help then through the weekend when their are no other means of getting good, healthy food.

The $8000 grant was a combination of $4000 from the Breakfast Club and a $4000 Governor's Grant from Rotary District 5440. Club members Dave Dietrich and Wilton Lyles were instrumental in getting the District Grant approved.
