What charities will this support?
  Three charities which are giving valuable assistance locally, in Mississippi and internationally, described below.


Mississippi Food Network (MFN) has been feeding Mississippians since 1984. MFN distributes more than 1.5 million pounds of food and feeds more than 150,000 every month — or a total of 1.8 million people per year. MFN takes donations from multiple sources, and distributes food and goods through 430 member agencies which distribute to recipients in their own communities. Every $1 donated provides seven meals to hungry Mississippians, and 97 cents of every dollar goes to their programs. MFN, a member of Feeding America, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.


2ndChanceMS raises awareness and funds for adult education and works skills training. Programs and initiatives have been developed that will significantly increase the number of Mississippi adults that have both the education and training to obtain and keep a good paying job.  The support for adult education and work skills training is a relatively inexpensive silver bullet that will lead to numerous other positive collateral consequences that will benefit all Mississippians.


Clean Water for Malawi was organized to prevent the people of Malawi from becoming sick, and even dying, as a result of drinking contaminated water. Rural areas throughout Malawi and Africa are populated in small villages and many of them have no convenient source of clean water for consumption, cooking or personal hygiene. After a well is drilled, maintenance and water testing training is emphasized to ensure lo ng time production of safe, clean water.

We will see you at Noon on June 5 when you will meet and hear from the newest recipients of the Rotary Scholarship.
