Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club Donates to Harry K

(Millsboro) (May 18, 2020) — As part of its ongoing mission to change lives within the community, The Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club virtually presented a $2,000 donation to Harry Keswani, President/Founder, The Harry K Foundation, to support the Foundation’s work in providing food to hungry children in Delaware. Funds for the donation were part of the proceeds raised at the Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club’s popular golf tournament held last June at The Peninsula on the Indian River Bay and funds contributed by Club member, Steve Grossman.

Harry Keswani updated the Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club at their virtual meeting on April 28 about the increased difficulties of serving the nutritional needs of children due to the result of school shut downs in Delaware and how the Foundation was working to meet that challenge. The Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club Board of Directors voted at its next meeting to double its initial pledge made to the Foundation to $1,500 and Board Member, Steve Grossman donated an additional $500 to bring the Club’s total donation to $2,000.

“Despite social restrictions, our Club is working diligently to support those suffering the most from this crisis,” noted Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club President, John Berner.  “Children are at the heart of our mission and we are delighted that we are able to help an organization like the Harry K Foundation continue on its mission of serving children’s nutritional needs.”

Once restaurants are again open, The Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club maintains a donation box for the Harry K Foundation food pantry at the front door of the Ocean Grill II Diner on Long Neck Road, where the Club normally meets when social distancing is not an issue.
