Donations help provide fresh food and more!

By West Bay Rotary Club | May 23, 2020

West Bay Rotary will match up to $10,000 in donations to the United Midcoast Charities Rapid Response Fund.  If we reach our goal, that will mean $20,000 to support our community.  You stepped up and together we raised over $10,000 in less than two weeks.  Let’s see how quickly we can make that $20,000.

West Bay Rotary has teamed up with United Midcoast Charities to support local nonprofits that are meeting the immediate needs of individuals seeking help in Knox and Waldo counties.  Donate now at https://unitedmidcoastcharities.org/covid-19-response/wbr/.

This funding will provide support for critical nonprofits like food pantries, homeless shelters, and more so they can serve the ever-growing demand for their services during the COVID-19 crisis.  Just one of those organizations that has received a grant from the Rapid Response Fund is Rockland Salvation Army to support their fresh food distribution which has seen an extraordinary increase in demand.

 

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, United Midcoast Charities has established the Rapid Response Fund.  100% of all donations received will go out as support for local nonprofits that are meeting the immediate needs of individuals seeking help in Knox and Waldo counties.  The fund is intended to provide stopgap support and anticipates the likelihood that local nonprofits will find themselves under-resourced to serve a growing demand for their services.
