Rotary Club of Pensacola President John Trawick announces the Club gave a $5,000 donation to Manna Food Bank to help provide food for those in need due to the Covid-19 Virus and loss of jobs. Trawick noted there is a “300 percent increase in local citizens getting in touch with Manna asking for food”. “Our Club wants to help,” said John.
Each year the Club gives Community Grants by selecting several non-profits who make applications for grants to help their organization with annual operation expenses. Applicants are chosen based on how they address Rotary goals of improving the lives of people and the community.
Community Grants Chair Bruce Partington said that “after review of applications ten non-profits were selected”. A total of $15,000 was distributed to the following: Thirty Million Words Sailing Regatta Pensacola Yacht Club Satori Foundation, Gulf Coast Kids House, AMI Kids, Rotary Youth Camp, ECARE, Ronald McDonald House, Council on Aging, YMCA NW FL, Emmaus Road Outreach, and Alfred Washburn Center.
