Every month the RSM Cares Food Pantry serves 500 local families ... that equates to more than 1800 individuals including 750 children and 400 Seniors. The Rotary Club of Coto de Caza / Rancho Santa Margarita del Sol and its Foundation has joined hands with the RSM Cares Foundation and other community partners to provide much-needed facility updates in the form of a break-in free 20 ft shipping container to store food, supplies, and equipment needed to serve our local families.
 
Providing a secure storage facility for the pantry to operate is of urgent need because the pantry has been burglarized twice in the last 7 months, losing food for people and pets as well as the equipment and supplies needed by the food pantry to serve our community.
The need for food in the RSM community is REAL and we cannot afford to have our resources stolen again.  Over 150 pantries in the OC have closed since March but client numbers have more than doubled in that time.  90% of the pantry's clients come from RSM and the surrounding areas.  The need is REAL.  Please join us in building a strong community and helping neighbors.
 
We are projecting a total project cost of $5,000 to provide a secure environment for the RSM Cares Food Pantry.   Any monies raised over the needed funds for this project will be restricted to ongoing Rotary support of the pantry.  All donations are tax-deductible.
