Rotary Club of High Point Donates $10,000

On Thursday February 8th, 2018, during the Rotary Club of High Point's weekly meeting at The High Point Country Club, The Salvation Army was honored to receive a $10,000 donation from the Rotary’s “Designs to Fight Hunger” campaign.

As part of the Rotary Club of High Point's 2nd annual “Designs to Fight Hunger” project, in coordination with the FOX8/Old Dominion Triad Holiday Food Drive, Rotary members purchased food and built a life sized model train out of canned goods in the new Publix grocery store on North Main Street, High Point. For several weeks the train displayed in Publix helped bring awareness to the Triad Holiday Concerts and fostered local conversation on combating food hardships. Together, they collected $2,100 to purchase 1,550 food items donated through the display and gave an additional $10,000 dollars to further support The Salvation Army of High Point’s food pantry.

Captain Bobby Jackson explained, “We are truly grateful to our friends at the High Point Rotary Club for their ongoing support of the mission of The Salvation Army to provide food for families in need. The High Point Rotary Club has been supporting The Salvation Army of High Point for more than 30 years as they exemplify the Rotary motto of Service Above Self.”

The Salvation Army of High Point would like to express their sincerest thanks to the members of the Rotary Club of High Point for their continual support and generosity as we work together to fight hunger in our community.
