In lieu of our Annual Fundraiser for the Suburban Rotary Charitable Foundation, Suburban Rotary is looking to help our neighbors by "Closing the Gap" and raising $34,000 for the Food Bank of the Heartland.  Demand at food banks and pantries around the metro area has skyrocketed in the last two weeks due to hardships caused by the COVID-19 virus.     So far we've raised $26,000 in donations and pledges.  If you are able, please consider a gift in any amount by clicking on the donate button on our website or by sending in a check to Suburban Rotary, 4089 South 84th St. PMB 317, Omaha, NE 68127.  (Call Jennifer to set up a monthly pledge.) 
 
Thank you to all those who have pledged or donated so far!
Join us live this Thursday to hear a special message from our local Suburban Rotary Foundation Fundraising Chair, Jeff Moran.  Suburban Rotary has plan to help the local community with food insecurity issues caused by the attempts to fight COVID-19.    We know you will want to be a part of this effort. Join us Thursday!
