Serving During the Pandemic
Meeting Local Needs
Yesterday, your Board of Directors took action to support efforts to distribute food to those in need, especially school age children and their families who are not able to reach the distribution points set up by DeKalb County. We are sending a $1,500 check (roughly the money we would have spent to hold our two missed meetings in March) to Malachi’s Storehouse at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church on North Peachtree Road to help them buy the food they need to keep the storehouse stocked.
Malachi’s has provided food on a weekly basis for those in need for over 20 years and are already experiencing an increasing demand. Several Dunwoody Rotarians brought this opportunity to our attention. St. Patrick's rector, the Very Reverend Richard Game, is a brand new Dunwoody Rotarian and responded to news of our donation saying, "Thank you so much! We are so very grateful to the Dunwoody Rotary Club for its great generosity!"
Ways You Can Help
- Should you wish to contribute on your own to this cause, checks should be made out to St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church with “Malachi’s” in the memo line. Checks should be mailed to St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church, 4755 North Peachtree Rd, Dunwoody GA 30338.
- If you see other needs in the community during this pandemic, contact Cathie Brumfield or Kobelah Bennah, our Community Service Director
