The ROC Report #13

June 18, 2013

It’s been a busy month and so I’m two weeks late posting this report. We finished a successful first year with Totes of Hope feeding 250 children every week for the school year. We’ve had many good reports of how helpful this has been for families and teachers not to mention the kids who look forward to every Thursday when they get their packet of food. They’re eager to see what the snack will be! Kim Regan with her assistant Tami Long did a wonderful job keeping it going all year. A big thank you to all the many volunteers who came every week to pack the totes and help get them delivered!

The summer Totes program is beginning with the kids in summer school. Kim is planning to pack 60 each week. She made the first delivery last week. Four small palates of food came today that will supply us for the month. I thank Rifle Truck and Trailer for receiving the shipment and bringing it over to the food bank at the church; Roland and his crew from the city of Rifle for unloading it and getting it down the stairs; and Jeanne for helping to get it on the shelves.

In May we helped a total of 8 families totaling 21 people with rent, utilities, gasoline and food. The $647 granted by The ROC for utilities was matched by $600 that we solicited from other agencies for these clients. A referral to another agency brought $300 for rent for a family and some help with utilities. We supplied $90 for food plus bags of food from our food pantry and also bought $70 of gasoline for two families.

These folks whom we help are screened by me to determine that this support will not be a month to month option for them. They must demonstrate that they have extenuating circumstances and have a plan to make it next month. Sometimes it means moving to a cheaper apartment or beginning a job they have been able to find. The job market is very tight around here. I’m learning that very few students have found work for the summer because what jobs they would have filled are usually taken by heads of families who are trying to make ends meet.

The Rock is still in business because of God’s blessing and the help of our regular contributors. I invite you to join them if you have some spare change. Another idea is that summer is a great time for fund raisers. You might consider having a garage sale or such like thing and contributing to The ROC. All donations are tax deductable. I’d love to have you on the team.

Till next time,

Dave
