Serving through Kids Against Hunger

Rotary club of Silicon Andhra began this Rotary year by completing its first community and international service project in collaboration with Kids Against Hunger on July 19th, 2021. A fundraising campaign was launched on Facebook and other avenues beginning July 1st. A total of $3000 were raised towards the event and was supported by 150+ volunteers (including children and adults) who took part in the event to pack nutritious & fortified food that will be shipped to Haiti and the Philippines. The event was organized under the CDC guidelines with strict mask wearing to ensure the safety of every individual that attended the event. The volunteers supported the event by packing 16000 meals that will help kids to get access to healthy meals. Milpitas Council Woman Evelyn Chua also appreciated the club for organizing such an event and has encouraged the club president Rtn.Priya Tanugula to host similar events in the future. This event also helped our club get more children register in our Interact club thereby making the Rotary club and community stronger. Pictures from the event can be viewed at:
