Food Drive is partnership between Rotary, WARM, Kroger
The Rotary Club of Westerville annually conducts the Rotary WARM Holiday Food Drive to benefit the local food pantry of the Westerville Area Resource Ministry (WARM).
The Rotary Club of Westerville Sunrise has become a partner in this event and Kroger since its inception has been the drive’s major sponsor.
The food drive takes place in neighborhoods across Westerville. Volunteers are sought to be Team Captains, Drivers and Runners. Call WARM at 614-899-0196, ext 220 to volunteer.
The one-day total for the 2019 Holiday Food Drive (HFD) collection was 28,351 pounds of food – the largest HFD total for one day in its history! This was a 57 percent increase in the food collected the prior year. Our Team Captains are a huge reason for this success!
For 2020, we are setting a goal of 30,000 pounds of food, a 6 percent increase in the food collected last year. We need your help as a Volunteer and Team Captain to help WARM meet this goal, and continue to help our community members in need.
The dates for this year’s WARM/Rotary Holiday Food Drive are as follows:
- Team Captain training: to be completed remotely
- Team Captain’s bag/materials pick-up: November 16-25 (at WARM)
- Bag drop-offs: Nov. 27–Dec. 2
- Bag pick-ups: Dec. 5 (8:30am–noon)
Please reply to Pam or Dan Stanley email@example.com to advise them if you would like to volunteer, be a Team Captain again for your previous neighborhood or select a new neighborhood. Response requested by Oct. 30.
