East Pasco Rotary Clubs Food Bag Project

East Pasco Rotary Clubs come together each year to fill over 1000 bags of food for our local school kids in need. 

Eckerd Raising Hope Project

The Rotary Club of Dade City is placing "Service Above Self" during our lunch meeting in the week of Thanksgiving 2016. We are giving back to those in need; we packed up $1000 worth of baby items along with toiletry items to help those right here in Dade City through a wonderful organization called Eckerd Raising Hope. 
There is such a demand for items for children who enter foster care. With just the clothes on their backs, they seldom have even a toothbrush and often carry the belongings they have in a garbage bag. There are other ways you can help through Volunteering, Organizing a Drive or Donating either giving items or by monetary donation. If you like to learn more please visit
