As you are aware, the USPS “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive to benefit SAM Food pantry was canceled for Saturday, May 9. Our club has partnered with the post office the last several years, and wanted to raise cash/credit card donations in lieu of the food drive. There were ads in the newspapers, flyers, and half-page flyers at IGA providing donation information from Sunday, May 3 to Saturday, May 9.
Here are the results:
Donations - $3,980
IGA Round-up - $860.55
TOTAL: $4,840.55 (equivalent in food - 19,362.20 pounds)
As you can see, our community was very generous. A special thank you goes out to Carol Beals for helping coordinate everything with the pantry and IGA. And thank you to all of you Kiwanians who donated and/or rounded up!
We are proud to announce the winners of the 2020 Tuscola Kiwanis Club $1,000 scholarships.
Congratulation to the recipients, who this year were all members of the Tuscola Community High School Key Club!
