New Port Richey, FL (Feb. 22, 2015) – The New Port Richey Rotary Club’s board of directors, through its “Community Avenue of Service,” has made a donation to the Pak-a-Sak program with a $2,500 sponsorship for upcoming The Hunger Walk. This event is a collaborative effort to promote hunger awareness and to raise funds for hunger relief for children and families living in Pasco County. It is organized and presented by One Community Now. The Pak-a-Sak program makes sure that children on the school lunch program also have something to eat on the weekends.
The New Port Richey club also contributed $500 as a major supporter of the third annual Florida Loquat Festival that will take place at Frances Avenue Park in New Port Richey late next month. The festival is a learning and sharing event expanding the knowledge and appreciation of the loquat tree and its fruit.
The New Port Richey Rotary Club was established in 1959 and meets every Wednesday for lunch at noon at the Spartan Manor in New Port Richey. Woody Tucker is the current president of the club for 2015-2106.
