Fellow District 5930 Rotarians,

This past week, our Rotary clubs from Area 13, which include
  • Los Fresnos,
  • San Benito,
  • Port Isabel and
  • Rancho Viejo,
held a can food drive for our local food pantries.
With the ongoing COVID-19 virus restrictions and the closing of non-essential work places there has been a high demand for food. As a result, our local food pantries have been running low in canned vegetables. With the help of our Rotary club Presidents and Rotarians from area 13 we were able to place collection boxes at different locations throughout our communities. Thank you,
  • Zarsky’s Lumber,
  • State Farm David Armendariz,
  • First National Bank of SPI,
  • Marcello’s,
  • S.O.S Shipping,
  • Rancho Viejo City Hall and PD
for allowing us to use their places of business for drop off locations.
Thank you to Boy Scout troop 11 in Brownsville for helping with distribution of our can foods. We helped
  • San Benito Food Pantry,
  • Los Fresnos Community Food Pantry,
  • Good Neighbor Settlement House Food Pantry
restock their inventory. We also collected monetary donations that will help our food pantries even more.
Where there is a need, Rotarians step up and find a solution.
We are here for our communities, for our neighbors and for our friends.
