Five Avenues of Service - Egg & Milk Donations
click to print this pageprint this page

The Wausau Early Birds Rotary Club started a program to provide fresh eggs to food pantries throughout Marathon County.  Since inception, the program has provided dozens of eggs to area food pantries and has expanded to include fresh milk donations. Members contribute additional dues to cover the cost of this program to help our community.

 

In December 2015, the Marathon County Hunger Coalition reports the following donations to the program:

 

"I thought I would take a moment to let you know how the egg distribution program that your club is sponsoring. The pantries have been extremely grateful and appreciative and tell me the eggs have been very popular with their clients and don’t last long. In any event, the following is a summary since we began the program:

 

September 29th:

               Wesley Pantry:                                               30 dozen

               Covenant Community Pantry:                    35 dozen

October 13th

               Community Center of Hope:                       30 dozen

               First Presbyterian:                                         30 dozen

October 27th:

               The Salvation Army:                                     60 dozen

November 10th:

               The Neighbors Place:                                    65 dozen

               The Neighbors Place:                                    36 ½ gallon milk

November 24th:

               Aids Resource Center                                   15 dozen

               Wesley:                                                            30 dozen

               The Neighbors Place:                                    15 dozen

December 8th:

               St. Florian’s (Hatley)                                      15 dozen

               The Women’s Community:                          15 dozen

               Catholic Charities:                                          30 dozen

               Catholic Charities:                                          12 ½ gallon milk

 

Again, since it has been some time since we last communicated to the group, I thought I would provide a summary report that you can pass on to the other members of the club if you desire. Thank you so much for your generosity. The clients of the various pantries have been and continue to be very thankful.

 

On behalf of the Marathon County Hunger Coalition, thank you for your continued support of our efforts to help those in need in the area.
