Fill the Truck – Carmel Rotary Annual Food Drive: April 29th and 30th

Fill the Truck – Carmel Rotary Annual Food Drive

On Saturday and Sunday April 29th and 30th, the Carmel Rotary Club will once again attempt to –‘Fill the Truck’ with groceries at Shoprite, Route 52 in Carmel, for our local food pantries. The residents of Carmel, Brewster, Kent, Patterson, Stormville, Pawling, Mahopac and surrounding towns have been exceptionally generous to those in need.  Each year the residents of Putnam County have joined the members of the Carmel Rotary Club in this worthwhile cause to help those less fortunate.  There are many families in our community that find it difficult to adequately feed their families.

This is the 9th year that the Carmel Rotary Club will be sorting and bagging nonperishable food for distribution to the Brewster Food Pantry, Gilead Church in Carmel, Putnam Community Action Program (CAP), and St. John the Evangelist Church in Mahopac.

With the guidance and experienced direction of Carmel Rotarian George Knochel, the 2016 Fill the Truck event garnered approximately $5000 worth of non-perishable food in addition to monetary donations from shoppers.

For additional information please call Rotarian George Knoechel at 845-225-3919.
