Oh Hello, you may have noticed that the past few weeks we have been sounding the Trumpet to inform you about our new "Go Fund Me" campaign.  Since we started in July we have raised $1,175.00 of our $10,000 goal. 
 
The Emmaus Rotary Club, East Penn Food Coalition Go Fund Me Campaign is live and so is our "DONATE" button on our website!  Through this fundraising platform we are raising money to fund the Feed East Penn Students Food Packing Program.  It is important that our Club Members get involved in sharing this campaign so that we can reach our goal of $10,000.  Donating and sharing is VERY easy and with just a few seconds a week, together we will make our goal! 
(If you need instructions on how to donate follow the steps in the read more section on how you can donate and share) 
 
 
 
Over the past few weeks we have raised $800 through contributions from club members and people from the community. 
We have a long way to go. 
 
 SPREAD THE WORD! THIS IS IMPORTANT! 
SHARING IS REALLY IMPORTANT FOR THIS CAMPAIGN TO GAIN MOMENTUM.

*If you are not able to donate at this time simply click the blue "Share" button to post to your Facebook and/or Twitter pages. 
 
*If you've completed a donation you will be prompted to share the campaign to your Facebook and/or Twitter pages. 
 
*Please also consider sharing this campaign link via email to your network of friends, family and colleagues. 
 
SHARING IS CARING! We may not all be in a position to donate but if every club member simply shares this information with more people the more impact it will have.  Please share on your social media once a week! It only takes a few seconds to share and I know lots of our members are active on Facebook and Twitter.  Think about the impact we'd make as a group by sharing this Rotary service project with our hundreds of online friends. 
 
If you need help with how to share you may reach out to me and I will do my very best to walk you through it or think of some creative ways you can help spread the word. 
 
I have included an email that I sent out to another board that I sit on. Feel free to use it! Just click "read more" below.

Hello XXX,

I’m writing today to share with you a very important initiative that the Emmaus Rotary Club has been working on to impact the East Penn community and invite you to help.
Emmaus Rotary Club has teamed up with several other local service groups in creating the East Penn Food Coalition to help feed hungry children in our community.  Each week volunteers pack bags of nutritious foods to provide breakfasts and lunches over the weekends. The school district has identified this need for over 200 East Penn families since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Yes food insecurity exists in our neighborhoods!
As you can imagine, to sustain this program we need financial support to purchase the essential foods we pack. Please take a few minutes to read about our program and join our Go Fund Me Campaign. Our goal is $10,000 and we hope that you will consider taking a small bite out of a big number by contributing and sharing with your network.  Please click the link below to join us!

With Gratitude,


This is the campaign for East Penn Food Coalition - East Penn Food Program https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/east-penn-food-coalition
