The Auburn Nebraska Rotary Club raises funds annually to End Polio Now. They pass buckets through the crowd during a high school football game. This year they raised $350.85. Since the Gates Foundation is matching funds 2 to 1, the impact is $1,052.55.
Throughout the past year and a half of the COVID-19 pandemic, need in our community has been great, particularly for access to essentials such as food. Accordingly, need for community support has also grown.
Last month, Downtown Lincoln Rotary Club #14 recognized this increased need and stepped up to create a Little Free Pantry at Community Action’s Gathering Place soup kitchen. The pantry was officially dedicated in an Oct. 29 ceremony.

But we would like to do so regarding a Rotary sponsored program to educate deaf and hard of hearing children in Nicaragua. Read about the need, impact of our project, and continued need below.
